The Spaniard explained how Mourinho drew out a team on paper that would win the league
Cesc Fabregas has opened up on what Jose Mourinho told him on his first meeting with the former Real Madrid manager at Chelsea.

The Spaniard explained how Mourinho drew out a team on paper that would win the league
According to Fabregas who now plays for Monaco says that the Portuguese boss drew out his team for the season on a piece of paper and was adamant that side would win the Premier League. 


Speaking to Rio Ferdinand in the first episode of the former Manchester United defender's Locker Room series on YouTube, Fabregas told all on that first conversation

'On the first day I met him he told me "I need two players,"' Fabregas explained.

'"I am going to sign Diego Costa and if you come.." He drew me the team on some paper and said this team is winning the title on the first day I met him. He only needed two players. Thibaut Courtois was already coming but he said, if you come, we win the title.'

The 33-year-old joined Chelsea in a five-year deal before the start of the 2014-15 season.




Chelsea finished eight points clear of Manchester City that season.


Fabregas joked that he would not have believed anyone who told him he would end up playing for both. 

'If you ask me when I was 23 years old and captain of Arsenal that I would be so happy to play for Chelsea, I would have said that you are crazy,' he added. 

'But my understanding with the club, everyone who works at the club, the players, I was just so happy. We had some great coaches and again you can see it is a club who wants to win, who is hungry for titles

'That was what I wanted. I knew going with Mourinho was important for my career.' 

Fabregas, who now plays for AS Monaco in Ligue 1, departed Chelsea in 2019. 
The Spaniard won two Premier League titles, an FA Cup and a League Cup as part of his trophy haul.
