Oh deer - Chelsea players play Christmas prank on César Azpilicueta
Chelsea's César Azpilicueta was the victim of a Christmas themed prank at the club's training ground yesterday.
Now in his fourth season with the Blues, the Spanish full-back made his way to the parking lot to find his car had been replaced by a reindeer.
The 26-year-old tweeted a picture of the animal as his struggling team-mates look to improve on their dreadful Premier League start that sees the champions 14 points adrift of leaders Manchester City after just 14 games.
How the mischief-makers managed to get their hands on a reindeer for the elaborate prank is a question worth asking, but Azpilicueta saw the funny side of the prank.
