Chelsea's Azpilicueta makes pundit eat his words - literally!
French football pundit Eric di Meco will be watching what he says in future after a throwaway comment had rather indigestible consequences.
Three years ago, when Spanish full back Cesar Azpilicueta joined di Meco's old club Marseille, the then president Jean-Claude Dessier described the player as "Spain's future right back".
But di Meco, a former defender himself, scoffed at the suggestion and told listeners on radio station RMC: "If that happens I'll eat a rat."
Fast forward to 2013 and Azpilicueta, now established as Chelsea's number one full-back after an impressive season, recently made his debut for Spain.
And, to his credit, di Meco did not renege on his promise and duly devoured a coypu species of river rat, live on air... Rather him than us!
