Playing for AS Monaco since January 2019, former Spanish international midfielder Cesc Fabregas (33), interviewed by Tuttosport, talked about both his past and his present, also reflecting on several football matters: "In spite of what many people think, Mou and Guardiola are alike on several levels, including how they live their profession, and their attitude in pursuing achievements. They marked a football history timespan, together with Klopp. Throughout last twenty years, I think they are the most relevant football managers, alongside Ancelotti, Ferguson, Lippi, and Wenger.
Pirlo? He's a genius, and can be a winner. He can do what Guardiola and Zidane did, that means winning titles without a proper education as a trainer. I'm sure he's going to be one of the top managers around. Sarri? He's a skilled trainer, and a kind-hearted individual. But he's too uptight on his opinions. Like the time he insisted on scheduling training start time at 3 a.m., despite some of us Chelsea players pointing out we couldn't be with our families at all, that way. Back when I was leaving Blues, anyway, I was in talks with both Ancelotti, ahead of joining Napoli, and AC Milan top exec Gazidis. Eventually, I was happy to choose AS Monaco".
