Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas, who turned 30 in May, believes he can play football at the highest level for many seasons to come.
“I know that people panic after players reach 30 and stuff like that, but I don’t believe in this,” Fabregas told Evening Standard.
“I feel well, I feel young in my mind. I train every day as hard as possible.
“I think in the last 48 games I have played in 47, and I only missed one because I was suspended against Tottenham in August.
“I always try to give my best. I will play at any moment, even when I’m sick or not 100 per cent.”
