Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta has taken to giving a lesson on YouTube in a bid to get people to stop pronouncing his name incorrectly.

Azpilicueta, 24, moved to Chelsea from Marseille last summer, having begun his career at Osasuna in his native Spain.

However following his arrival in London his Chelsea teammates had trouble when it came to pronouncing his surname, eventually giving up altogether and opting to call him 'Dave'.

And now in an attempt to set the record straight, Azpilicueta has posted a video on sharing site YouTube. But despite spelling his name out in big blue letters on a whiteboard, it seems people are still struggling to get it right - if those polled at the end of the video are anything to go by.
