Spanish midfielder and former Arsenal and Barcelona player Cesc Fabregas spoke to Puma about his new boots and time at the Stamford Bridge.
Describe your first season back in the Premier League so far. How has it been?
It’s been great so far, I’m enjoying it a lot. The Premier League has definitely improved since I left three years ago. The passion is still the same – from the fans, the players. Physically it has always been a really hard league because it is so competitive, but tactically it’s now much better. I think to break down defence these days is more difficult than before.
From your first game back in the Premier League, it was like you had been playing with Chelsea for years. Were you surprised how easily you adjusted to playing for a new team?
I was lucky to have a good pre-season. We played four or five games pre-season and that really helped me find my rhythm. We have a very young and talented squad and I get on well with everyone, so that made my introduction really easy.
What impresses you about Chelsea as a club?
It’s a very well structured club. The people inside the club, the people who work for Chelsea are really nice and make you feel very welcome and I settled in very quickly. It’s been very positive.
