Spanish international Cesc Fabregas has revealed he left Chelsea when Maurizio Sarri arrived with his ‘son’ Jorginho. The Spaniard joined Monaco during the January transfer window having struggled to nail down a starting spot under new boss Sarri.
The former Arsenal man believes his days were numbered once the Italian walked through the doors at the club before labelling Jorginho as the manager’s son, who joined Chelsea shortly after.
“I like to have a new objective. All the time for me it’s important to have a new objective in my head. I was at Chelsea and I could have renewed my contract and stayed there but a new coach came with a player that for him was like his son,” revealed Fabregas.
“For me, it was difficult to play every single game and that’s what I want to do. I love football. I don’t want to just be happy to play for Chelsea. For whatever reason, it was impossible for me even if I was better, or someone else is better, to play every match.
“I decided to come to a project that was different for me and I think it will give me so much satisfaction. Fabregas spent five years at Stamford Bridge after arriving from Barcelona in 2014.
