Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has hailed the impact of Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea, saying he wishes the Italian had arrived earlier at Stamford Bridge.
Fabregas admits he’s enjoying touching the ball more than 100 times in a game.
“I’ve only been with the team for two weeks after seven or eight weeks out,” Fabregas said.
“I feel really good. I feel sensations under Sarri I never thought I would feel again.
“Touching the ball 100 times, all the play going through me or Jorginho. I’m learning it.
“The way he (Sarri) sees football is something that, maybe in the future if I become a coach, I think I’ll do something very similar to what he does. It’s what I like and how I see football.”
Fabregas’ contract expires at the end of the season and the Spaniard is yet to be offered a new contract by the club.
Asked whether he would like to sign a new one, and stay because of Sarri, Fabregas added: “I wish he came a bit earlier to be honest.
“I’m very open about it. The club has not said anything. I have eight months left and at the moment I’m gone. But I’d love to stay.”
