Video: Cesc Fabregas Supplies Awesome Backheel Assist in Chelsea Training

Pre-season is the time of year where players focus on regaining their fitness… or in Cesc Fabregas‘ case, on opening your bag of tricks on the training ground.

Having won the Premier League title at a canter last season, the pressure is on Chelsea not only to replicate last season’s form but also to compete at a high level in the Champions League.

That doesn’t seem to be worrying Fabregas though, as he showcased a fancy flick to assist a teammate in training.

The quality of the video isn’t great, so it’s difficult to tell who the players in the clip are.

However, given Fabregas’ caption, “Joga bonito ?⚽️”, we feel it’s safe to assume he’s the one performing the backheel…


The former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder was of course linked with a Stamford Bridge exit last season, following the arrival of N’Golo Kante from Leicester City.

As the season went on though, it became clear that Conte relied on the 30-year-old to add a bit of flare to his hard-working side.
