This has pleased the Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern…
Rumours surrounding the future of Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas have been circulating in the Football Transfer Tavern since the arrival of Antonio Conte.
The Chelsea fans by the bar have repeatedly insisted that Fabregas is not a Conte-type player, and his role under the Italian boss this season will be limited as a result.
Whilst many of the Chelsea fans in the Tavern had become resigned to losing the Spaniard, Antonio Conte has seemingly handed Fabregas an olive-branch.
Speaking in a press conference ahead of Chelsea’s clash with Liverpool on Friday evening, Conte has ruled out any chance that Fabregas will leave the club – and has confirmed that he is in his plans going forward.
“He’s in my plan, in Chelsea’s plan. We all know he’s a fantastic player” he added.
Conte also spoke of Fabregas’ desire in training, and that his performances behind closed doors have given Conte a tough decision to make ahead of the Blues’ crunch clash against Liverpool.
“It’s great to see him in training with a great attitude. If he continues in this way he will play.”
Whilst Chelsea fans in the Tavern are cautious about Fabregas’ purported inability to play in a Conte XI, this news has certainly given them hope going forward.
They feel that Conte clearly rates Fabregas, and so he will find a way to utilise him in some way.
Our landlord is in total agreement with Conte. He thinks that Fabregas is a top player – and when he gets his chance under the Italian; he will take it with both hands.
Chelsea fans – pleased with this news?
