Former Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has revealed former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho sometimes called Chelsea players “rubbish”.

Despite Mourinho sometimes calling him and other Chelsea players “rubbish”, Fabregas admitted Mourinho is the best manager for top players.

In an online Q&A with Manchester United icon Rio Ferdinand, the 33-year-old Monaco midfielder said: “Arsene Wenger is the best coach for young players.Pep is the most tactical out of the three.

“He trusts the way he plays and the way he teaches you to play will find the right spaces. Jose is probably the coach that played with my mind better.”

Before adding: “He is probably the coach that played with my mind better. He is a great coach for great players because he plays with the mind. He stimulates you.

“For example when we were playing well and doing well in the league he would text you and say how good you were, ‘Ah you played so well’ but then say ‘today you were rubbish’.

“You know, after the game he would play with you. Jose works with the mind of the players like nobody.

“He can tell you you are the worst and then the next day if you prove him wrong, he will say you are the best in front of the team.

“Or sometimes you played well but the team lost he would come and hug you alone because you were the warrior for him today. People have different states of mind but for me it was good.”
