Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas praised and backed his club manager, José Mourinho, while speaking to Radio Marca:
“He is the best coach in the history of the club and the best we can have. Personally, he helped me in a very complicated moment of my career and he gives me confidence.
“I will do whatever he asks. In face-to-face situations he helps me a lot and I respect him for that.
“Mourinho is different in person from when you see him on television. I know because I’ve experienced it.
“We [Chelsea] are not well, but we will do better. We have the best coach for the club.
“People have not forgotten that five months ago we won the Premier League and a cup – but we have to change the situation fast and soon.”
