Former Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has been a blessing to the Euros, watching along and giving his insights and opinions on things, it’s been refreshing to see.
He is a very intelligent player himself and when he talks, it is best to listen.
The Monaco man has been typing up his thoughts in a weekly article for The Telegraph, and his latest scribblings have some great compliments of a former Chelsea coach that Fabregas calls England’s secret weapon in the Euros.
He is of course talking about Gareth Southgate’s number two, Steve Holland, who Fabregas worked very closely with during his time at Stamford Bridge.
Holland is widely respected as a very good coach in the game, and it appears that he has been doing wonders for this England team.
As he writes in his latest Telegraph column, Fabregas says:
“Assistant managers can be undervalued when it comes to handing out praise to people for the performances and results of a team, but, in Steve Holland, England have one of the very best.
“Steve and I worked together for three years and won two Premier League titles together at Chelsea, and I can tell you that he was very important to our success.”
Nicely put Cesc, and Chelsea missed him immensely when he left the club.
