Cesc Fabregas explains why Chelsea must win trophies if their dominance is to be remembered…
Cesc Fabregas, who was speaking after Chelsea beat Schalke 5-0 to confirm their Champions League progress as group winners, told reporters that his team must win trophies or they will not be ‘remembered’.
Chelsea midfield maestro Fabregas believes he’s playing the best football of his career, and has also insisted that he chose to join the Blues during the summer in order to win trophies.
The Spaniard, who is quoted by the Daily Mail, moved to Stamford Bridge from Barcelona in June, despite reported interest from his former club Arsenal, and has yet to lose a competitive game as a Blues player.
“I feel in control and that’s what I like the most in football,” he said. “I touch the ball all the time, I feel happy, I go and get the ball from here, from there, I can go forward, Oscar drops deep. I feel free, I feel confident.
“Sometimes in the last three or four years in the national team and Barcelona, I was playing like a No 9. I mean, I have to do it for the team and I enjoy it, and it’s all good.
“But, here, where I am playing today, in these games, it’s where I enjoy my football the most. I feel right now I am playing some of the best football of my career.
“I’ve played in World Cup finals, European Championship finals, Champions League finals with great teams. I’m not saying the (last two) games against West Brom or Schalke were the best, probably they weren’t, but definitely they were games I enjoyed a lot.”
