midfielder Cesc Fabregas has brushed off accusations that he has been leading a
Chelsea player revolt against manager Jose Mourinho whilst also stating that he
believes Mourinho will also keep his job for the foreseeable future despite a
poor start to the season.
After winning the
title last year, the Blues have faltered this time around and have suffered
seven defeats in their first 12 league games which has left them languishing in
16th position in the Premier League table. After a remarkable demise
this season, recent reports have claimed that the players have rebelled against
Mourinho’s methods with other reports labelling the former Arsenal captain
Fabregas as the leader.
the reports, in a recent interview with a Spanish newspaper Fabregas has
wholeheartedly denied the allegations and insists his relationship with the
manager is very good, despite acknowledging that Chelsea are playing at far
from their best at the moment.
When asked if he
thought the Blues would sack Mourinho, Fabregas responded with: “No. Mourinho
trusts us and we trust him. Obviously it is a lie (that Fabregas led a revolt
against Mourinho). I backed him in a very difficult time. My relationship
with Mourinho is good, as always, but when things aren’t going well people are
always looking for something.”
that he’s now become used to the criticism he and his teammates have been
receiving of late, but while Chelsea’s season is going poorly Fabregas admits
that he goes home irritated after every defeat – as he expects his teammates
and his manager do too.
added: “Those of us who have been most criticised are Hazard, Diego Costa
and myself, but you get used to it. We’re not doing well in the league at the
moment. Last year we lost four games all season and this season we have lost
seven already. But Mourinho is a winner, when he loses he goes home
annoyed, like I do.”
After a sensational
debut season at Stamford Bridge which saw him provide 24 assists and then add
another five goals in all competitions, this season has been a complete drab by
his usual high standards. So far this season he has only managed to provide one
assist. However, despite a poor start to the season, the ability of Fabregas is
undoubted and it could be a perfect time to invest in a Fabregas ‘future’ on
the Football INDEX whilst his price is still low. You can grab a slice of the
Spanish International now for just £2.55 per ‘future’.
