Cesc Fabregas joined Chelsea in 2014 from Barcelona and played a key role in central midfield as Chelsea went on to win the league and League Cup in his first season at the club.

Fabregas won the hearts of Chelsea fans during his time at the club but was eventually sold off to Monaco in the January transfer window of 2019 after falling out of favour under former boss Maurizio Sarri who preferred his signing from Napoli, Jorginho.

When asked what he thinks of Sarri in a Twitter Q&A session, Fabregas called him ‘a good man with a good heart’ and also refused to question his tactics while also labelling him as inflexible tactically.

Fabregas said: “He has his tactics and he dies with them. He’s not very flexible let’s say but he’s a good man with a good heart.”

In a previous interview back in June 2019, Fabregas has described Sarri as very superstitious and very stubborn.

“He is very superstitious, he is very stubborn in this way,” Fabregas said.

“He is a manager with his own ideas and he doesn’t move from them much.

“He has an idea of how he wants to play and the football that he really wants to play. He doesn’t move from it. No matter what you tell him, no matter what you advise him, no matter what your opinion is, he will never change.

“But he did it the way he likes it. He has his own vision of football and, in the end, he is where he is with it and you have to respect that.”
