Published Add your comment

Cesc Fabregas has finally fulfilled his long-awaited dream of winning the Premier League title, which was confirmed last Sunday after Chelsea defeated Crystal Palace 1-0 at home to be crowned 2014-15 Champions.

After eight failed attempts with Arsenal to win the trophy from 2003-11,making over 300 appearances,the decision to quit Barcelona for Chelsea last summer has yielded fruitful results for the Spaniard.

Chelsea’s main creator-in-midfield now claims Jose Mourinho tops the list of managers he has played for.

He said: ”He (Mourinho) has some edge that goes above anyone else I have been with. He knows how to get the best out of you,and that’s what you want from a manager.He is someone who motivates a player every three days,when you play 60 games a season and that is not easy, trust me.”


“The mentality shows every training session.I now understand why he has won what he has in his career.”

He further added: ”Mourinho allows me to feel like a leader,to feel important to the team,and that is always good for a player to feel like you have the confidence of the manager.”

Chelsea’s number four has now warned Premier League rivals that winning the title this term is just the beginning of a new era of success at Stamford Bridge. Fabregas believes Chelsea have got the potential to be the best team in Europe.


The 28-year-old explained: ”Everyone thinks that we have a big squad, but we don’t.We’ve used 22 players,some of them from the Under-21’s,so its not easy and he(Mourinho)is doing a fantastic job.”

One of the major transfers of last summer, Fabregas was convinced by Jose Mourinho himself to join Chelsea and since then the Spaniard has provided match-winning performances,keeping the faith shown in him by the Portuguese manager.

If Petr Cech decides to leave this summer,Cesc is in contention to be handed the vice-captaincy of the side,with Gary Cahill and Branislav Ivanovic the other potential candidates.
