Former Barcelona midfielder about his first season at Chelsea
Cesc Fábregas spoke to Sport Magazine about his first season at Chelsea FC. Former Barcelona midfielder remembered his time at Barcelona and praised Leo Messi.
These are Fabregas' most interesting quotes:
Relationship with Mourinho
- “I had my thoughts, but until you don't work with that person. Mourinho made me feel things I didn't felt since a long time ago. I felt important with him, which is vital".
- “He fights for his players, defends them until the very end. He wants you to show the best every day and that's what I want: a coach that makes you feel you are in your best moment".
- “He always wants to win".
- "When he signed for Real Madrid, that year, he won the league win 100 points. And now he comes back to England and wins the Premier League, when Chelsea had not won it for five years".
His career at Barça
- “I learnt a lot. Playing at Barça was a great experience for me. They won a lot of titles and if you want to go there you need to show your best level. I learnt a lot from all the players and I feel more mature now having played in Spain and England".
- “I absorbed a lot from him. But obviously, reaching Messi's level is impossible because he's unique".
