Fabregas Among My Most Under-performing Players – Mourinho.

Published

on

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has named his top four under-performing players and Cesc Fabregas was mentioned.

At various points in the season, Mourinho has dropped one or more of his standard starting eleven this season with Diego Costa being the last of the core to miss out on a run of games.

Mourinho dropped Fabregas for the crucial Champions League group game against FC Porto which the blues won 2 – 0 with goals from Willian and a Marcano own-goal putting them in the round of 16 of the competition.

The Portuguese said at a match conference: “Last year he had a huge responsibility for the quality of our team, he was fundamental,” he said of the Spaniard.

He added: “This season he is at the same level as the team and it is difficult to play especially well.

Mourinho continued: “If you go player-by-player, last season – Branislav Ivanovic, Gary Cahill, John Terry – you could say were fantastic. This season it is more difficult to say this player is being magnificent.”

“I don’t see Cesc differently, but what I see is that every minute the professionalism is there and he is never afraid to have the ball or to be afraid to make a mistake. I completely trust him.”

Chelsea currently lie in 14th place on the log. They face table topping Leicester City on Monday night.

This is one of the most difficult career decisions I have had to take. It’s been an amazing 5 years journey, but after due consultation and extensive discussion with my family, I have decided it’s time for me to retire from the National team.

It’s has been an eventful and most memorable opportunity to serve my country with pride, passion and to contribute my quota to the development of our football, the memories would stay with me for a long time and I’m immensely grateful. It is now time to concentrate on Club football and give the younger players chance to learn and grow.

I would love to thank the NFF, coach Gernot Rohr for believing in me against all odds,to my teammates for their professionalism and team spirit without you guys I wouldn’t have achieved so much with this team.
