Cesc Fábregas: “Coaching Barça? I can’t deny that it would be a dream to coach Barça one day. Time will tell. Right now all I want to do is prepare myself well to become a coach.”
Cesc Fabregas, the former Barcelona player and the current player of the Como team in the Italian League, analyzed the current situation in Barcelona in an interview with the RAC1 team, talking about Xavi and the team’s path after the defeat against Bayern Munich.
Cesc played three seasons at Barcelona, from 2011 to 2014, the years he happened to be with Xavi. The player was not surprised by his choice to try to straighten out the team’s trajectory. He commented, “It may have come to him sooner than he had imagined, but he is very prepared. And in the end he never stopped being a healer and that always gives you an important recognition.”
This season on the bench, along with coach Terrassa, two old friends of his used to be present this season: Gerard Pique and Jordi Alba. About that, he said: “Accepting the switch costs a lot. What will cost them more when they are not playing is that the next day you have to work with the substitutes while the starting ones recover.”
Cesc believes that the team will be stronger with Messi and did not rule out the return of his Argentine friend. “I don’t know if Messi’s return to Barcelona is possible. It could be an option if Barcelona are open to it. In the end it will be a decision for him and the club. It will be a happy ending.”
About the former Barcelona captain, now at Paris Saint-Germain, he added, “Talking negatively about Messi does not correspond to the experience I went through with him. He was the team’s most loving and respected player. He is a player who is built to win trophies.”
The former Barcelona player confirmed that he loved the team’s performance in the first half against Bayern Munich and that he is convinced that the team is on the right track to win again. Regarding Barcelona’s options to win the Champions League, Cesc is not ruling out anything.
“I see a very competitive team, eleven players who make up a very good team and a strong coach.” In addition, he paid tribute to Marcos Alonso, with whom he played at Chelsea. “He takes free kicks amazingly, and if you give him chances he will score for sure.”
Cesc Fábregas: “Piqué’s situation with the club? It’s very hard to be benched. It never goes down well. It must be difficult for Piqué to train the day after a game while the other players are doing recovery work.”
Cesc Fábregas: “Messi returning to Barça? I don’t know if it’s possible. It could be an option if Barça are open to it. It would be a beautiful and happy ending.”
Cesc Fábregas: “Marcos Alonso is a great free-kick taker. If he is given opportunities, the Camp Nou will see a lot of free-kick goals, no doubt.” https://t.co/8KLDXDCmC1
