The former Arsenal star is extremely happy with his move to Stamford Bridge, and believes that time was right for him to move out of Barcelona.
Cesc Fabregas, who returned to EPL after a 3 year gap is feeling happy to be a part of the Premier League circuit once again. Fabregas, who moved to Chelsea last month feels that moving to Chelsea was the best decision that he could have made.
“It was very important for me that the deal was done before the World Cup,” The Spanish international revealed in an interview.
“I wanted my head free and to know what I was going to do next season and where I was going to be. I thought I was at the right age and I believed I wanted a change. I looked at all the offers I had and after speaking to the coach, I thought Chelsea was the best decision.”
Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho also played a crucial role in completing Fabregas’s transfer to Stamford Bridge. The Spanish midfielder has always been a great admirer of Mourinho’s ability to extract the best out of his squad. While talking about his new coach Fabregas said “Jose’s teams are always difficult to beat and always difficult to play against. Tactically they are very well-composed and they have discipline. He gets the best out of his players.”
Fabregas will now be playing with another former La Liga star, Diego Costa, who helped Atletico Madrid to clinch the La Liga title last season. He believed that Costa will be the main striking force for Chelsea in this season.
He stated “Diego has been progressing immensely in the last couple of years”.
“He is a real threat in every single game. Last season he was playing every three days and he was consistently giving really strong performances.
“He goes behind the defence and he makes the kind of runs players like me really like because it gives you an option to play the killer ball. I think he will do superbly here.”
Kurt Zouma Likely To Stay At Stamford Bridge
Kurt Zouma, who was rumoured to be Loan-out this season, is likely to stay with the West Londoners this season.
The 19 year old Frenchman was linked to a possible move to Sunderland or Monaco this season.
But his position in the squad looks to be extremely solid after he was handed over the number 5 jersey for this season, which means that he will have a pivotal role to play in Jose Mourinho’s squad this season.
