ROBERTS CONDEMN FABREGAS AND HAZARD’S COMMENTS

Former Chelsea and Spurs defender Graham Roberts condemned the comments of Chelsea players, Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas for their open comments on who they prefer to lift the English Premier League this season.

He described the comments about wanting Leicester City to win the EPL title over Tottenham Hotspurs as “ridiculous” and unprofessional.


Chelsea face Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on Monday before hosting Leicester on the final day of the season, meaning that last season’s Premier League title winners could yet have a big say on the destination of the trophy this time around.

Eden Hazard after the 4-1 victory over Bournemouth last weekend said that “the fans, the club and the players” want to see Leicester edge out Tottenham in the title race. On the other hand, Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas had earlier revealed that he too would be rooting against Spurs most likely due to his links to the emirates where he played for years.

The comments angered many as it led to suggestions that Chelsea might deliberately lose to Leicester in order to deny Tottenham the title and undermine the integrity of the Premier League and the Chelsea coach had to come out to deny the suggestions.

Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas praises top Players

Former Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has lavished praise on his former team’s attacking threat provided by the likes of Luis Suarez, Neymar, and Lionel Messi.

The trio were absolutely irresistible in the second half of last season and this led to Barcelona winning the three major trophies on offer. More extravaganza is expected from the Barcelona forward lineup when they go up against Chelsea in a pre-season friendly match. After all, they come into the game as the European champions whereas their opponents have just been crowned as the Premier league winners.

During his time at the Camp Nou, Fabregas played as the false number nine on a few occasions. Now, the team has been more intent on creating lots of chances primarily through the fixed front three. Neymar plays on the left whereas Messi has been moved back to the right-wing. This allows Luis Suarez complete freedom in the centre of the park. However, all players have been scoring on a regular basis while also assisting others without any hint of selfishness. Fabregas says that he is extremely happy to see such a vibrant attack for Barcelona. He reckons that it will take a lot from Chelsea to overcome their opponents. Read more »

Jose Mourinho speaking something positive about Arsene Wenger

It’s not often that you get to hear the Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho speaking something positive about Arsene Wenger, but, yesterday was one of those rare days.

Mourinho said Wenger is fantastic as far as the managerial skills are concerned and his boys would make Chelsea’s title defence pretty tough in the 2015-16 Season.

Mourinho’s relationship with Wenger has never been good, but, the previous season, it soured to the maximum and the two had almost gone to the distance of getting physical with each other during a game.

Mourinho had also taken a dig at the fact that Wenger had constantly been there holding his post at Arsenal despite not being able to win them as many trophies as he should.

Mourinho had said at that time that he would never hold onto his post for that long without providing returns to the club.

In Mourinho’s words, “He must have had some sort of specialization in failing. He just keeps failing. I am telling you I would never stay there if I don’t produce the results. Eight Seasons, it’s a long, long time you know.” Read more »
