This Special Midfielder Can Play in Any Position: Jose Mourinho
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is all praises for Cesc Fabregas’ impressive versatility and hails him as a complete midfielder able to play at any midfield position.
Cesc Fabregas has made an impressive start to his comeback English Premier League season, developing a fine partnership with Diego Costa.
“The surprise for me was not that he didn’t go to Arsenal, the surprise for me was that he was leaving,” Mourinho said.
“I thought he was going to stay at Barcelona. I was looking at him as the natural successor of this generation of players of Barcelona, like Xavi.
“We had other faces in mind, other players on standby, in case we couldn’t get him. We went without fear. We went trying to get him. It’s possible, it’s possible. It’s not possible, we move on.
“One of the reasons he’s so important for us is exactly because he can play in any position in midfield.
“Even in Barcelona he was playing as a nine, their style of nine. Sometimes he was playing from the left wing too.
“He can play in many positions. It depends what you want from the game. What is your plan? Where do you think he can have more influence in the game?”
Fabregas is in the best phase of his career and, despite he is still a legendary figure at the rival Arsenal camp, Mourinho had no second thoughts about signing the Spanish midfielder.
“He was always in trouble,” Mourinho said.
“When he was at Arsenal he was always fighting Chelsea, and now he plays for us.
“He was just a young guy trying to make the best for Arsenal and at that time Chelsea was the strongest team. Just normal competition.
“Supporters just want players to play well for his club and to show commitment. I don’t think it’s any problem.”
We hope he continues his great run against Machester City tonight, and we demolish them the same way we did last season.
