And Chelsea manager Mourinho admitted that Fabregas is a better guy than he thought after snapping up the midfielder for £32m.

“He [Fabregas] is a better guy than I thought,” Mourinho is quoted as saying by the Express.

“He’s a fantastic guy, he’s a fantastic professional.

“Now I understand why at the age of 19 or 20 or 21 he was Arsenal captain.

“When I am the manager at Chelsea the armband will go to another arm that has been in this club for many many years.

“But one thing is [the leader’s] brain needs to be connected with the manager, and his brain is connected to mine during matches.”
