John Terry has revealed who he wants to replace Azpilicueta as the next Chelsea captain.
- Azpilicueta is edging closer to leaving the Blues at the end of the season with Barcelona looking set to wrap up a deal for the veteran defender.
EKO HOT BLOG reports that John Terry feels Mason Mount should become the next Chelsea captain once Cesar Azpilicueta leaves the club.
The Spaniard is on the verge of leaving the Blues at the end of the season with Barcelona looking set to wrap up a deal for the veteran defender.
Azpilicueta has won the Champions League and the Europa League twice in his time in west London as well as winning two Premier League titles.
Should the 32-year-old depart in the summer, Jorginho, who captains Italy has been tipped to become the next club captain but Chelsea legend Terry feels academy graduate Mount is the perfect fit.
“He [Azpilicueta] has been superb and as you said, there are many ways to skin a cat,’ Terry told Stadium Astro.
“He does it differently. His performances first and foremost have to speak for themselves, and they certainly do that.
“When your captain it’s important that you are a consistent performer, week in and week out. You give a solid seven or eight out of 10 every week. He does that for the group.
‘And again, he is that example for everyone else to follow. I love what he does but I think the progression from that would probably lead itself to Mason for me.
“I think Mason has got the ability to go on and I think he’s capable of grabbing the game by the scruff of the neck if we need to.
“The Chelsea fans relate to him. He is Chelsea through and through. His family are as well. I would personally love to see Mason take it.”
Should this be Azpilicueta’s final season as captain, he’ll hope to end the season with another trophy by lifting the FA Cup.
Chelsea faces Crystal Palace in the semi-final on Sunday, April 17 with the winner facing Manchester City or Liverpool.
