#PremierLeagueStories – #CescFabregas opens up on his relationships with #PepGuardiola & #JoseMourinho #AFC #CFC

Former Chelsea and Arsenal star Cesc Fabregas has revealed that he keeps in regular close contact with Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho, but does not speak to childhood hero and ex-Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola. The Spanish midfield maestro dropped the bombshell when speaking with Radio Catalunya, revealing that he often writes to his old Chelsea chief Mourinho and considers to 57-year-old a close friend. The pair spent two seasons together at Stamford Bridge, winning the Premier League together. But Fabregas spent far longer working under his childhood hero Pep Guardiola and has lifted the lid on their fractured relationship.

Cesc Fabregas said “No, no, with Pep nothing at all 9If he has had contact with Pep), I don’t know if the disappointment with Pep is mutual. Things happened, but I prefer not to talk about it. Pep was my idol since I was a child. It is him I have learned the most, perhaps, since I was four until now. Mourinho inspired me the most when I left Barca. He told me that we had had our issues on the pitch when he was at Chelsea and I was at Arsenal and then when he was coaching at Real Madrid and I was at Barcelona, but that for him, it all ended there. We turned the page. He told me about his project. I had to go where I thought I would do best, the decision was mine and it didn’t depend on what people said. I prioritised the professional [aspect], and today I still write to him and I consider him a friend. He helped me a lot at a difficult time in my career and perhaps I played one of my best seasons with him.”
