Cesc Fàbregas Beats Willian And Pedro In Speed Test By Using Intelligence Instead Of Pace
Willian and Pedro might be quicker than Cesc Fabregas on paper, but the Spaniard rinsed his Chelsea teammates in training last year in this quickness and agility test.
It's clear that both Willian and Pedro are shocked by the result, but it just shows that pace isn't everything, especially on the football pitch.

The midfielder makes wise decisions throughout drill, picking up the cones in such an order to avoid having to make any drastic changes of direction.

Kept the momentum going in 1 direction
Didn't waste time to stop and go in other direction to collect.

Cesc with pace would be the ideal midfield player!- DFW Ger (@Dubai_Ger) October 4, 2018
Willian complains but he's beaten fair and square. The guy even asks the coach for re-measurements as Fabregas wheels away in delight. Have you ever seen anything like it?
The thing is, Fabregas is an incredibly gifted footballer but even he couldn't beat Lionel Messi in one of these drills.
The midfielder was speaking to TYC Sports about his former days at Barcelona with the world's greatest, a player who he spent time together in Catalonia during the glory days of tika-taka football.

Believe it or not, when I was little, I was quite good at tackling and nobody could get past me because I was quite aggressive." pic.twitter.com/jwUPvZYSch- BarcaTimes (@BarcaTimes) June 20, 2018
"There's one story which stays with me, others I can't tell you," said a tight-lipped Fabregas, presumably not wanting to discuss all the occasions Messi utterly humiliated him.
"I had to defend against him and you know he's going to the left, and he does, but he still makes me fall to the floor."
Even he admits it. The true GOAT.
