Chelsea defender John Terry has expressed his delight at the start Cesc Fabregas has made to his Stamford Bridge career.
The Spaniard has settled into the Blues camp quickly and has already formed a deadly partnership with striker, Diego Costa, which has helped them to the top of the Premier League and already establish a three-point lead at the top.
Fabregas spent eight-years at Chelsea rivals, Arsenal, but Terry insists that the midfielder is now part of the Chelsea family and he is delighted to have him at the club.
‘Obviously we were always competitive when we played against each other, and we had a little laugh about that. But that’s what football is all about – the rivalry.
”But now he is one of us; part of the Chelsea family, and he is playing great. In the short time he has been here, he has made a big impression.
”He has a long contract, and we all hope he can bring great success to Chelsea for years to come.”
”Obviously Cesc is a world-class player. To have someone so influential from the Spain squad, along with Diego Costa, has been great.
”You can see the qualities Cesc brings to the pitch – he can find passes that others can’t. He keeps the ball really well, and he helps us control games.
“When we are playing out from defence, he can help us keep the ball. He is associated with tiki-taka, but at Chelsea we have always played this way; pass the ball, control games, and give ourselves more options going forward.
”He’s certainly added to the squad, and that’s why we are stronger now in the department.”
