Cesc Fabregas: Chelsea midfielder says Jose Mourinho is a winner

Five Things To Watch Out For

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas was full of praise for manager Jose Mourinho as the Blues prepare for the Capital one cup clash against Bolton.

Chelsea have continued their impressive start to the season with a comfortable victory against Hull and sit top of the table, three points clear of the champions Manchester City.

While the Londoners have been the clear favourites for the title since August, and rightly so, former Arsenal star Cesc Fabregas revealed that its not just the title Mourinho is after.

Fabregas mentioned earlier this season that the winning mentality of Jose Mourinho was a key factor that persuaded him to join Chelsea in the summer. The former Barcelona midfielder was full of praise for his manager once again as he stated that it did not take him long to realise what a winner Mourinho is.

According to Fabregas, Mourinho has made it clear to the team that he wants to fight on all fronts and land the quadruple. Already in a commanding position when it comes to the Premier League and the Champions League, Jose Mourinho is equally focused on the Capital one cup and the FA Cup as well.

“It didn’t take long to see that the manager is a winner. He wants to win every ­competition that he is up for”, added Fabregas. 

Ahead of their Capital one cup clash against Bolton, Cesc revealed that Mourinho has specifically asked the players to come up with their best performances against the Championship side.

“He has already told us he wants to win this trophy. It is the first trophy of the season and he wants it”, claimed Fabregas.

During his previous spell at Chelsea, Mourinho has always shown tremendous respect for cup matches and Fabregas’ statements underline the fact that nothing has changed and that he is still hungry for silverware.

Whether Chelsea manager to land all four trophies remains to be seen, but with the squad Mourinho has assembled and the form they are in, nothing is impossible.
