Chelsea mid-fielder Cesc Fabregas insists that the Premier League title this seson would be just the start as he senses many more titles in the years to come with such a great sqaud.
Chelsea are on the verge of winning their first Premier League title in five years if they manage to win against Crystal Palace this weekend. The midfielder praised the team as he sensed the squad he joined has something special in them.
Chelsea has proven doubters wrong this season as Fabregas played a crucial role in their title triumph. The manner in which he linked with Matic was one of the keys for their success this season. Having already won Capital One Cup this season, Fabreags would love to have Premier League winners’ medal on Sunday ahead of his 28th birthday on 4th May.
He said, “Once we all met at the beginning of the season and we started training with each other, we knew we had a great squad. We also played well at the start and we were also getting to know each other better and better. We had a strong team and a strong squad.
“I knew the city, I knew the league and I am a very open minded guy. I can adapt to wherever I am and whatever the situation is. “
“The best of my career? Maybe. Maybe the experience and the quality have all come together for me. I know myself much better.
“I am playing in a position that I like a lot. I feel much more important to the team. It all comes together and I won’t deny that I have enjoyed this season a lot. I am enjoying my football and I am comfortable because there is a manager who allows me to play the way I feel and that obviously helps a lot.
“You have no fear because you have the confidence of the manager. Your team sees you as an important person on the pitch and in the dressing room.
“There is a new team and a new generation coming up and we have to stick together as long as we can. Hopefully, this is the start for Chelsea, not the finish.”
He then sets his sights on next season’s Champions League as they were knocked out in the round-of-16 by PSG this season by away-goals rule.
“We want to go one step forward next year and fight more the Champions League. We have to push for that and maybe we have to adjust one or two things if we are to achieve that. We have seen that in England we can win everything. In Europe it changes. But we are not far away,” he added.
“This is as good a team as I have played in,” he said. “Definitely. We have a strong mentality and character and they are all winners and competitors. The dressing room spirit is fantastic. John Terry is a great leader but everyone like Ivanovic and Petr Cech, all the players who have been there a long time, they help a lot.
“And there are a lot of young players like Oscar and Willian. They are coming of age, getting maturity and starting to compete well. “
