Fabregas: Superstitious Sarri is a stubborn character
Cesc Fabregas has branded his former manager a stubborn character
The Spaniard left Chelsea in the winter transfer for Monaco, and he has branded the manager he worked with last at the Stamford Bridge as a stubborn character.
Maurizio Sarri doesn’t buy the opinion of others and he’s a stubborn being, according to Cesc Fabregas.
Sarri has been touted for a move away from Chelsea to go take over the vacant job at Juventus, who had at the end of last season erstwhile coach, Massimiliano Allegri announced that he would end his 5 years association with the Italian giant.
The Chelsea coach has been said to be disgruntled at the management of the club, and all things being equal, this week the former Napoli coach will finalise his move to Juventus.
Speaking of his former coach, Fabregas, as quoted by Skysports said, “He is very superstitious, he is very stubborn in this way. He is a manager with his own ideas and he doesn’t move from them much.
“He has an idea of how he wants to play and the football that he really wants to play. He doesn’t move from it.
‘No matter what you tell him, no matter what you advise him, no matter what your opinion is, he will never change.
“But he did it the way he likes it. He has his own vision of football and, in the end, he is where he is with it and you have to respect that.”
Fabregas, who also represented fellow London rival Arsenal during his time at Arsenal, helped battling Monaco avoid the drop in last season.
Meanwhile, the midfielder heaped praises on his fellow teammate at Chelsea Frank Lampard, for the job the Englishman is doing at Derby County.
Lampard narrowly missed out on bringing back Derby to the English topflight as they lost on playoff to Aston Villa and Fabregas said of Lampard, “He had a very difficult squad, an older squad full of players at the end of their contracts as well, he renewed completely the squad, took on young players.
“He played a really aggressive style, attacking football. Really for a first-ever job, I think he has done really good.”
