Cesc Fabregas

London, Aug 29 (IANS) Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has dismissed media reports that said chief coach Antonio Conte asked him to leave the London football club and insisted that he still has a role to play.

The former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder has failed to secure a prominent role in Conte’s Chelsea side during the opening couple of weeks of the season, fuelling rumours of a transfer.

The 29-year-old has been at the centre of a variety of rumours, as he and his teammate Juan Cuadrado are believed to be targets for Italian champions Juventus.

“Contrary to what has been written, the manager and I have a good relationship and he has NEVER told me that I can leave. He said that he counts on me, as I count on him,” Fabregas wrote on Facebook on Sunday.

“I will continue to fight for this club until the very end and when called upon I will always give my very best. I’m fully committed to Chelsea Football Club and my only goal is to help them win more trophies. #ChelseaFC.”

Fabregas played 37 games and scored five goals in the English Premier League (EPL) for Chelsea last season.
