Talking to journalists ahead of Chelsea’s clash against Stoke, Fabregas addressed his old team Barcelona and described them as “Messi and 10 others”.
Fabregas has been in brilliant form for Chelsea all season, providing 12 assists while scoring a few goals for himself in the process. Fabregas failed to produce this kind of form at Barca who are currently struggling to keep pace with Real Madrid in the La Liga. When asked about Barca, Fabregas said “This season Barca are Messi and 10 others, Messi has saved his team on many occasions.” Fabregas went on to dismiss any possibility of Messi joining Chelsea, stating that the Argentine loved Barcelona too much.
