Cesc Fabregas reportedly involved in a training ground bust up following a nutmeg from a U21 Chelsea player.
Tumultuous couple of weeks of Cesc Fabregas looks like hasn’t been exclusive to match days.
The Spanish midfielder was reportedly involved in a training ground bust up with Chelsea youngster Charly Musonda after the U21 player nutmegged the midfielder, who received repeated boos from Chelsea fans during their latest win over Sunderland on Saturday.
Fabregas, along with Diego Costa and Eden Hazard, was labelled a ‘rat’ on a banner held at Stamford Bridge, and was also booed by some supporters when he was substituted in the second half. A majority of the supporters pinned the blame for the Blues’ disastrous form squarely on the players rather than on the controversial Portuguese manager.
Each of the Chelsea goal, from Branislav Ivanovic, Pedro and a penalty by Oscar, was welcomed by repeated chants of “Jose Mourinho, Jose Mourinho.” The home supporters even rose to their feet for a couple of minutes in an ovation to the recently sacked manager.
Captain John Terry also insisted earlier that Mourinho’s sacking was not because of a team mutiny and denied any of his team members had deliberately performed badly to force Mourinho’s departure.
The Sunderland match was the first time Chelsea had played after firing Jose Mourinho, following a frustrating defence of their Premier League title.
Now according to the Daily Mail, Fabregas unexpectedly clattered into Musonda, starting a melee among his teammates, in an incident that allegedly happened just before Jose Mourinho’s departure.
Musonda has proved himself for a first-team chance following an impressive performance for the U21 Chelsea squad against Middlesbrough on Monday.
Chelsea’s fellow west London outfits QPR have shown interest in Musonda, as new manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink ready to sign the youngster.
The Blues will face seventh-placed Watford at Stamford Bridge on Boxing Day as the players under Hiddink now look to pull clear of the bottom three. They are currently sitting three points above the relegation zone.
