Cesar Azpilicueta acknowledges supporters, medical personnel, and physicians after suffering a head injury.

Cesar Azpilicueta, the captain of Chelsea, thanked “everyone who has been looking after me” after suffering a serious head injury during Saturday’s home loss to Southampton.

Sekou Mara’s overhead kick attempt caused Azpilicueta to be smacked in the face, leaving him motionless on the field.

The 33-year-old Spain defender was given oxygen therapy for a while before being carried away on a stretcher, although he was still aware as he did so.

Graham Potter, the manager of Chelsea, stated after the game that Azpilicueta was “awake” and “speaking” in the hospital.

“My family and I would like to thank everyone who has been looking after me since yesterday’s incident,” the full-back tweeted on Sunday.

“A huge thank you from the bottom of my heart to the @ChelseaFC medical staff, my teammates and opponents, St Mary’s and Cleveland Hospital, and all staff members and physicians. Time to rest up, and I’ll see you on the field soon!

Potter admitted on Saturday that “it was a difficult moment for us.” “I believe he briefly lost consciousness, which worried everyone. Even if it was unintentional, it was nevertheless a blow to the face. How awful it was is obvious.

With 15 games left in the regular season, James Ward-free Prowse’s kick in first-half stoppage time handed the Blues their sixth loss of 2023 and put them 10 points behind the top four in the Premier League.
