Born in Pamplona, Spain, César Azpilicueta Tanco is a Spanish footballer who currently plays for Chelsea FC.

"Dave", as he is affectionately known by the Chelsea fans, began his football career in 2001 in the youth set-up at CA Osasuna, his local club in Pamplona. He progressed through the youth set-up to Osasuna B and eventually the full senior side in 2007, making 99 league appearances in 3 seasons before moving on to Olympique Marseille in the summer of 2010. He played two seasons in the French Riviera before securing a lucrative move to the newly crowned UEFA Champions League, champions of Europe, Chelsea FC. Roberto Di Matteo was in charge of Chelsea when he signed for the Blues on 24th August 2012 for a reported £7m.

Despite Di Matteo's sacking a few months later, just into the 2012/13 season, Rafael Benítez and all subsequent incumbents have kept faith with Dave. He has proven a versatile and trustworthy signing, playing a minumum of 40 games in each of his first five full seasons at Stamford Bridge. He has played in all defensive positions at various times, most recently converting from his natural left back position into one of the three centre backs in Antonio Conte's "three at the back" formation. He has also captained the team a number of times and on John Terry's departure at the end of 2016/7 season, Antonio Conte appointed Azpilacueta as squad vice captain to Gary Cahill. It was Azpilacueta's hand ball that led to Benfica's penalty equaliser in the 2013 UEFA Europa League final in the Amsterdam Arena. No harm done though as Chelsea went on to win 2-1 with Branislav Ivanović's late winner. Azpilacueta has been part of the Spanish international set-up with multiple caps at all levels from U16, through U17, U19, U20, U21 & U23 to full international.
