Filipe Luis posts a photo from training with Chelsea's Totti, Cesc Fabregas
Filipe Luis appears to have given Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas the nickname, ‘Totti’.
The Spain international is known to Premier League supporters as Cesc, although the 27-year-old playmaker’s first name is actually Francesc.
The Chelsea midfielder has been in brilliant form for the west London side this season, scoring two goals and making an incredible 15 assists.
So no wonder Luis likened his Blues team-mate to prolific Roma legend Francesco Totti, not least because the midfielders practically share the same name.
Luis posted the above photo to Instagram and wrote: “Training with Francesc “Totti” Fàbregas @cescf4bregas”
Luis has made 10 Premier League starts and a further five top-flight appearances from the bench following his £19m move to Chelsea from Atletico Madrid in the summer.
Chelsea suffered a surprise 4-2 defeat by Bradford City in the FA Cup fourth round at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Jose Mourinho’s side face Liverpool in the second leg of their Capital One Cup quarter-final in west London after a 1-1 draw at Anfield last week.
