On-loan winger Cristian Tello has criticised his parent club’s treatment of its former favourite Fabregas.
FC Barcelona winger Cristian Tello, currently on loan at FC Porto, has laid into his parent club’s treatment of Cesc Fabregas, who moved to Chelsea for £3om this summer after three seasons at the Nou Camp.
“Cesc didn’t leave the club as he deserved,” Tello told Spanish paper Sport in an interview earlier this month.
“He left through the back door. He was a spectacular player, you only have to see the goals and assists from his time at Barca.
“I suppose he will be hurting because his dream was to triumph at Barcelona.”
Tello may have an axe to grind with Barca, after he was loaned out for two years to Porto.
In the same interview he claimed his plan is to return to Catalonia and work his way into the team, a task that seems impossible given the extraordinary attacking talent the club possesses.

Tello may have a point though as Fabregas had scored a goal every three games from midfield, as well as countless assists, before being sold.
The moment his replacement Ivan Rakitic was signed, Barca got rid of Fabregas and appeared to blame him for the (relative) trophy drought club has endured in the last two seasons.
The 27-year-old is already thriving at Stamford Bridge and reminding everyone of just how good he can be.
Before Tuesday’s Champions League game in which Fabregas shone, manager Jose Mourinho claimed that he “understood” the midfield ace, while Barcelona never did.
