Fabregas - The Missing Piece!
As the pre-season programme starts to come to an end and the new season draws ever-nearer, Jose Mourinho knows that Chelsea have to be in amongst those contending for honours this season.
With a re-shaped team and with several of the old guard gone, Jose appears to be particularly happy that he managed to persuade one of his summer signing to come to Stamford Bridge.
Talking about Cesc Fabregas and his adaptability, this is what the Special One had to say,
"I always thought Cesc would be a Barcelona player because he`s so good. And being a Catalan and with the end of Xavi`s career coming, I thought he`d stay."
"But he wanted to come back to English football - a bit like me."
"Not only does he know the Premier League, he`s also not on the foreign list because of all the years he lived in England - so that was important."
"He can play as a #10 and score and #8 and give most of his game to the team - as we have Nemanja Matic as anchor-man and John Obi Mikel."
"Then we have Oscar and Willian as #10`s. Cesc is both. He`s the missing piece of our engine."
Monday 18th August and Burnley away can`t come around quick enough for me, how about you?
