Cesc Fabregas takes to Instagram after the Chelsea midfielder receives apology from Secret Football Company
Cesc Fabregas has secured justice after the Secret Football Company issued an apology for falsely accusing the Chelsea midfielder of attempting to lead a revolt against Jose Mourinho.
The Blues midfielder was reported by the Secret Football column to be leading a revolt against the outspoken Chelsea boss in October following the defending Premier League champions’s poor start to the season.
The Spaniard was quick to take to Twitter to deny the speculation and the playmaker underlined his good working relationship with the Blues manager after Mourinho signed Fabregas in a £27m deal from La Liga side Barcelona in July 2014.
And 28-year-old Fabregas was seemingly thrilled to have emphatically quashed the incorrect story on Friday night after the Secret Football Company apologised to the Chelsea midfielder for the false story.
Fabregas posted the above photo and copied the statement into his caption for the snap: “#justice
“Statement on behalf of the Secret Footballer Company Ltd:
“In an item published in the Secret Footballer’s Diary on 2 November 2015 it was claimed that Chelsea’s Cesc Fabregas was the leader of a mini-revolt against manager Jose Mourinho. Our information on this was incorrect. Cesc Fabregas was not organising a dressing room revolt and has an excellent relationship with the manager.
“He is very happy at Chelsea. We regret our error and have apologised to Cesc Fabregas.”
The former Arsenal captain was omitted from Chelsea’s starting line-up for their 2-0 win against Porto on Wednesday night.
