Conte wants Fabregas to improve

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has told Cesc Fabregas that he wants him to improve the defensive side of his game.


He said that the player is a great playmaker and that he is an instrumental player for Chelsea when going forward but he needs to improve a lot when it comes to winning the ball back.

He said that the player will have to learn from his midfield partner Kante and that he will have to contribute defensively to the team.

Antonio Conte said that Fabregas had been an important player so far this season as he is the one creating chances in the absence of Hazard. He said that there is no doubt that Fabregas is a great offensive midfielder, but there are games where he will be required to tackle a bit more. He said that it is on this aspect of his game that he wants him to work on. Read more »

Cesc Fabregas also praises Eden Hazard highly

Ray Wilkins just like Cesc Fabregas also rates Eden Hazard highly and reckons that there is not a big difference between him and Lionel Messi if one compares the sheer footballing skills of the two players.


Wilkins reckons that it can’t be said at this stage that Hazard 100% matches Messi as a player, but, the Belgian is surely there and thereabouts and is not lying behind by a big margin.

Fabregas had recently suggested that apart from Messi, there is no other player in the world who has got more potential than Hazard, but, the only problem with Hazard is that he is not as selfish as he should be.

According to Fabregas, rather than finding the net himself, Hazard tends to make opportunities for the others to score and that is why, he has not been able to make as big a name for himself as he could have.

Fabregas revealed that he had advised Hazard to get a little selfish on certain occasions and try and register the goal to his own name rather than just assisting it because it’s the number of goals only which would get him into the list of elite footballers. Read more »

Fabregas to City

There are reports that Manchester City might make a move for Chelsea and Spain midfielder Cesc Fabregas.


The midfielder has already played under Pep Guardiola at Barcelona and might be interested in meeting with his former manager again.

Manchester City who has failed to win a game for 5 matches now are looking for players that can strengthen the team. It is believed that Pep Guardiola wants to sign Cesc Fabregas who seems to be unsettled at Chelsea.  The player has failed to adapt to Antonio Conte system and seemed to be only a fringe player for the Chelsea team.
