Chelsea fans decide Cesar Azpilicueta is now just ‘Dave’…Dave approves

Chelsea TV's Gigi Salmon hosted an audience with the club's Spanish contingent of Fernando Torres, Oriol Romeu, Juan Mata and new addition Cesar Azpilicueta, who is now officially just "Dave." As Salmon explains in the clip, some fans (and commentators) have had a difficult time pronouncing the 23-year-old defender's surname, so they have taken to just calling him Dave. Azpilicueta finds this quite funny and offers his approval of the new moniker. So, he is now Dave.

With that settled, Juan Mata then sings Macarena (which he admits was the initiation song he performed for his teammates upon joining the club). Clearly a good time was had by all. Including Dave.
