“Is this a wind up?” – Chelsea legend John Terry reacts angrily to Neil Warnock labelling Azpilicueta as ‘lucky’


Former Chelsea defender John Terry has hit out at Neil Warnock for his comments on Blues captain Cesar Azpilicueta . The former Middlesbrough manager claimed that Azpilicueta was 'fortunate' to be at Chelsea and that the Spaniard was not a great defender. He told talkSPORT:

"It goes two ways. I think Azpilicueta
has been a very fortunate lad to be at a club like Chelsea. I don't think he is a great defender. Sometimes in
football, you need a bit of luck and I
think he's had a bit of luck at the right time and in the right place. That's what you need in football, you need a bit of luck to be successful."

Terry replied to the tweet of the video. He wrote:"I s this a wind up ? @talkSPORT"

Azpilicueta's former Chelsea and Spain teammate Cesc Fabregas also replied with a facepalm emoji.

The Spaniard has made 459 appearances for the Blues and is the club's seventh highest appearance-maker of all time. The defender has also won every major trophy at club level with the Blues, including captaining the Thomas Tuchel's side to the UEFA Champions League title last season.

The defender has made 17 appearances for Thomas Tuchel's side this season, providing two assists as well. Azpilicueta has been deployed at both centre-back and right-back by the German and has been one of the Blues' most consistent players.
