Chelsea star Cesar Azpilicueta has spoken of his fury after Spain's hotel was raided by thieves during their recent stay for the Confederations Cup.

A number of Spain players had their possessions stolen while they were out of the hotel, with wallets and personal items among the items taken.

And Azpilicueta has admitted the Spanish team were disappointed with the security staff, and felt they had had their privacy violated.

Speaking to, Azpilicueta said: "It is something that happened, unfortunately. We hope whoever has to take security measures deals with it.

"We put our trust in the security, so it is bad when this kind of thing happens. But we can put it behind us.

"Now they need to be aware so it doesn't happen next year [when Brazil host the World Cup]

"Of course the lads were upset, some of them had their wallets taken. They felt as though their privacy had been violated, so they are right to be upset."

The reigning World and European champions have won their first two group games at the tournament, a 10-0 win over Tahiti and a 2-1 victory over Uruguay.

Azpilicueta starred in the demolition of Tahiti, and was full of praise for the Maracana as a footballing venue.

"The Maracana is an outstanding venue. Every player dreams of playing here, as I was able to do today. It was a dream come true for me."

The 23-year-old right back will be looking to keep his place in the Chelsea team under new Blues boss Jose Mourinho after an impressive first season in English football last term.
