Cesc Fabregas Decided To Quit Chelsea When Sarri Signed His 'Son' Jorginho

Cesc Fabregas has admitted he decided to leave Chelsea when Maurizio Sarri signed his 'son' Jorginho from Napoli.

The Spanish midfielder departed Stamford Bridge in January.

He secured a transfer to AS Monaco and he's revealed the arrival of Jorginho prompted his decision to call time on his career at Chelsea.

"I like to have new objective. All the time for me it's important to have a new objective in my head," he said.

"I was at Chelsea and I could have renewed my contract and stayed there but a new coach came with a player that for him was like his son."

Jorginho followed Sarri to Chelsea following a stint together at Napoli for a transfer fee of £50 million.

So, naturally, he was favoured ahead of Fabregas in the crucial central midfield role.

And the ex-Arsenal captain knew his playing time was limited under Sarri.

"For me it was difficult to play every single game and that's what I want to do. I love football. I don't want to just be happy to play for Chelsea," he added.

"For whatever reason it was impossible for me even if I was better, or someone else is better, to play every match.

"I decided to come to a project that was different for me and I think it will give me so much satisfaction."

Fabregas spent four-and-a-half seasons at Chelsea. He won two Premier League titles as well as domestic cups during his spell with the Blues.

He's now enjoying his football in France, where he has scored one goal.
