Mourinho claims that Fabregas already loves his new club after summer move.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has stoked the fire ahead of tomorrow’s crunch Premier League clash and London derby against Arsenal, report the Mail, after claiming that former Gunner Cesc Fabregas has already fallen in love with his new club after a summer move from Barcelona to Stamford Bridge.
Fabregas made the controversial move from Barcelona to Chelsea this summer after it became apparent that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was not interested in bringing him back to the Emirates Stadium, much to the dismay of the club’s supporters.
Mourinho has hailed his new boy ever since Fabregas walked through the door at Stamford Bridge and the Spaniard has paid him back in spades since the start of the season, bagging himself seven assists and one goal for the club to date as he strikes up a fine partnership with fellow new boy Diego Costa.
Arsenal fans are likely to be hurting when Fabregas takes to the field against them for the first time as a Chelsea player tomorrow, with Mourinho making a point of stoking the fire in his pre-match press briefing:
“I think he loves Chelsea already. He’s so happy: the way he plays, the way he’s a member of the squad, the way he lives in this little blue village. It is like he’s here for a long time.”
Indeed, Fabregas does look to be enjoying life as a Chelsea player and already looks at home at Stamford Bridge – a point that he will be looking to ram home against his former club at Stamford Bridge tomorrow.
