After Chelsea’s defeat against Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, Cesar Azpilicueta got into a fight with a Blues supporter. His trainer Thomas Tuchel, who witnessed the scene, said that he understood the fan in question.
Cesar Azpilicueta had a complicated match against Arsenal on Wednesday night. Even more so in the absence of Blues captain and leader of defense, Antonio Rudiger, he saw his team score four goals. In the end, he was also the one who erred on Bukayo Suga and offered punishment. An hour earlier, the Spaniard still scored 2-2, which has become anecdote.
Chelsea have lost their last three home matches against Brentford, Real Madrid and Arsenal. So after the final whistle, while Gunners supporters sounded, the Blues left the stadium or expressed their displeasure. One of them, on the front lines, ironically praised Azpilicueta for his team’s performance.
Tuchel understands pro
Chelsea’s captain, the Spaniard, did not understand at first, hanging his hands, then walked away, before finally retracing his steps to meet this supporter. The brawl lasted about forty seconds, with a furious Azpilicueta and a supporter who calmed down, thumbs up when the blues player finally withdrew.
Thomas Tuchel watched the scene from his bench. “I saw it, but honestly, I can even understand the pro,” he told a news conference, without actually defending his player and captain. The Blues must now find a way to victory to find peace.
