Fabregas: Mourinho Is Better Than Wenger

CESC FABREGAS insists he could not be happier with life under Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.

The former Arsenal star joined the Blues last summer, finally claiming his first Premier League title in his debut season at Stamford Bridge.

Fabregas insists he is learning plenty from his new boss Mourinho and that the Portuguese manager is making him feel ‘important’ again.

The Spanish playmaker also hailed Mourinho’s will to win.

Fabregas said: “I had my thoughts, but until you work with the person who you expect things from, or who you don’t really know about, then you are always curious to see how things will really be.

“And so far, so good. I’m learning a lot. He’s making me feel things that I hadn’t felt for a while. And I feel very important, which is vital.

“I know that he really fights for his players; he defends his players to the end.

“He’s very demanding. He wants the best out of you every single day, and that’s what I want: a manager who makes you feel at the top of your game.”

Fabregas added: “With him you also know that you have to be at the top of your game, otherwise you don’t play.

“This is good for the whole squad because you know that if you are competing well, you will have your chance. It’s a very fair approach.

“The motivation he has given to the team all season is not easy.

“Sometimes when you win too much or when you lose, it can either give you too much confidence or not enough.

“But he always maintains the right balance. And he always wants to win.”
