Cesc Fabregas publicly backs Jose Mourinho and denies being part of rebellion
Chelsea midfielder claims an excellent relationship with Mourinho despite terrible season at Stamford Bridge
November 3rd, 2015
Cesc Fabregas’ Chelsea career started swimmingly, with the Spaniard’s early performances in a blue shirt helping to pave the way for a title success last season although the player’s form had already started to dip before the current campaign began.
Rumours have started to circulate that Fabregas is one of several players who is disgruntled with manager Jose Mourinho and it has even been claimed that the former Arsenal midfielder is actually the leader of a rebellion against the manager.
However, Fabregas denies this is the case, with the midfielder taking to Twitter in response to online reports that he was unhappy with the manager’s methods and wanted him out at Stamford Bridge.
Fàbregas wrote on Twitter: “I would like to clarify that contrary to a few reports from some online websites, I am extremely happy at Chelsea and have an excellent relationship with the manager.
“There may be certain individuals from the outside trying to destabilise this club, but I strongly believe that we will bounce back and come good again.”
Even so, it is hard to explain away how Chelsea have suddenly gone from champions to bottom-half material, with Eden Hazard and Nemanja Matic looking particularly underwhelming this season when set against their magnificent form for the club last time around.
John Terry was notably dropped earlier in the season although the captain has since been restored to the team because of Branislav Ivanovic’s injury and the failure to sign John Stones in the summer.
