Fabregas Picks His Best XI Of Former Teammates And It's Outrageous
Cesc Fabregas has named his best XI of former teammates and it’s outrageous.
We’re talking Thierry Henry, Lionel Messi and Eden Hazard.
And, naturally, those names all feature in his all-time XI of former teammates.
He’s posted an image of his side accompanied with the words: “I didn’t know they’d ask me this so I did it very quickly. Only players I played with. I feel Puyol & Villa should be there. What are your thoughts?”
Deadly, deadly team.
But Fabregas has defended his decision to pick Costa over Bergkamp and Villa.
“It’s not about being better, it’s about how well I performed with them. Dennis was unbelievable,” he said when a fan questioned his call.
Fabregas forged a lethal partnership with Costa at Chelsea. He recorded an impressive 19 assists in the 2014/15 season as the Blues won the Premier League title.
While citing Robin van Persie’s fitness issues as the reason for not including him in his team.
“If he had stayed fit all my time at Arsenal I’m sure he’d be in this team. He was very unlucky for a long time.”
Fabregas, though, does believe Puyol is the greatest captain of all time.
What’s your take on his XI? Let us know.
