It’s not been a great season for Chelsea, or their star midfielder Cesc Fabregas.
The Spaniard returned to the Premier League from Barcelona in 2014 and enjoyed an impressive debut season at Stamford Bridge, winning the Premier League title and League Cup.
But he and his team-mates have endured a desperate campaign this term, getting off the their worst-ever start to a top-flight domestic season.
Jose Mourinho has overseen seven defeats in just 12 league games, and the Blues are currently marooned in 16th position in the table, hovering just above the relegation zone.
And Fabregas has given a rather frank admission of his bad the season is going, calling the west London club “f***ed”.
Fabregas, currently on international duty with Spain, told newspaper Marca:
“This season is being f***ed.
“The results have not done justice to what we do [on the pitch]. We are doing things better, but we’ve had no luck… We have to start winning now.”
“With Mou, it’s good, good,” he said. “Obviously when you don’t always win things are said, and when you win, everything is great.
“When you do not win, everything costs more, but we must be united and strong with the fans and the coach.
“We can only move forward together. Nobody will help us.”
Interesting way of putting things, Cesc.
The embattled side face an absolutely must-win match when their star-studded squad take on Norwich at Stamford Bridge on November 21.
