Lovely image of the captain sharing a moment with James’ dad

On speaking via Byline Podcast, Reece James’ father Nigel heaped massive praise on Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta:

What’s been said:

“What he’s achieved in the game, you only pray to God to give Reece that same career.

“Most important thing is how he is as a person. He’s a family man, he’s a great role model.

“(After the final) I thanked him for looking after my son.”

Azpilicueta has won multiple titles with Chelsea and is still going strong at the age of 31.

At the age of 22, Reece James already has a Champions League medal now – hopefully, he can become even better than Azpi in the coming years!
