Chelsea defender Azpilicueta tells Warnock: I can pay your fine!

Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta has enjoyed a cheeky dig at Neil Warnock after the Cardiff City manager copped a hefty fine yesterday.

Warnock, 70, has been ordered to pay £20,000 by the FA for criticising the officials in post-match interviews following Chelsea's 2-1 victory over the Prem strugglers in March.

Cardiff were leading 1-0 before Azpilicueta equalised six minutes from time, with replays showing the Spaniard was in an offside position.

The Blues then went onto win the game - leading Warnock to lash out at the officials.

Azpilicueta laughed: "We will talk in private about sending him money.

"I was there in the middle because I was the one who scored the goal.

"When I scored, I looked at the linesman. I thought I was on the edge."
