Chelsea captain Azpilicueta responds to Jorginho & Busquets comparisons

Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta can see the comparison between Spain teammate Sergio Busquets and Jorginho.

Azpilicueta will come up against his club teammate when Spain take on Italy in the Euro 2020 final on Monday.

He told The Guardian of similarities between Jorginho and Busquets: "They're two great players who move well in short spaces: intelligent, tactically sharp, they judge space well and always choose the right pass for the team.

"Jorginho is a great footballer, very important for the way Italy play. He likes to be in contact with the ball, to control the game, he's clever. The less he intervenes the more we have a chance of controlling the game.

"He's surrounded by great players too and we'll have to come up with a collective solution.

"I'm fortunate to be able to enjoy Jorginho with Chelsea and Sergio with the national team. Hopefully we can control Tuesday: Sergio's very important for us in that."
