Cesc Fabregas has not been getting regular playing time under Antonio Conte and he has admitted he was upset about it at the beginning, but he is now settled at the club.
The Spanish midfielder made his 300th Premier League appearance in Chelsea’s 3-1 win over Swansea, scoring a goal and assisting another.
The match was his sixth league start of the season amd he has made 11 appearances ifrom the bench.
The 29-year-old said he initially struggled with his lack of game time under Antonio Conte.
“In the beginning, when I didn’t play, I told people to not even speak to me because I was really upset,” Fabregas told UK newspapers.
“But now that changes with time, age, maturity and experience, which all help you to understand that the most important thing is always the team.
“Don’t get me wrong: I want to play. But sometimes you have to fight for it.”
“For sure, it’s Chelsea I’m thinking about,” Fabregas said.
“Until the day Chelsea tell me they don’t want me, I can leave, and it happens to everyone, then you have to move on.
“When my brain says you can’t do it anymore then I will move, probably away from Europe. But for now, it’s all about Chelsea and performing here.”
Conte’s side are flying high in the Premier League, holding a 10-point lead at the top.
