Alonso Response After Not Passing Captain Armband To Azipilicueta

One of the odd scenarios that took place during Chelsea's win over Aston Villa was what happened when club captain Azipilicueta was subbed on. Marcos Alonso had been given the armband for the game but he didn't hand it to Dave after he came on, despite that being the common practice. This has never happened in Chelsea football history.

This left Chelsea fans speculating quite a bit but finally he has responded to the act on yesterday match.

He wrote: "I have the answer for you sir! (At least my theory). The last three times Azipilicueta got subbed off and moved the armband across, he got booked for 'time wasting', (each time was complete bs by the way).

"When Azpi got subbed on, Alonso already was on a yellow and it wasn't worth the risk of a harsh sending off, to try and move that armband across mid match."

It's an interesting take for sure, although it's a bit more likely that Tuchel was okay with letting Marcos Alonso have his moment since he was performing well.
