Cesc Fabregas was named in the Facebook Best XI of the year recently and spoke of winning the League Cup and finally the Premier League trophy this season. After a long wait, Fabregas lifted the title last Sunday and believes there is more to come from this Chelsea side.
“I’ve had many years trying to fight for this trophy and to finally have it with me means a lot. It’s a very special moment, one of the greatest of my career.
It’s been brilliant playing in the Premier League for many years, and to finally have the Premier League in your hands is a moment that I will remember forever.
It’s been a good year because we’ve been the best. Not losing to anyone in the top four is always special because that shows how well we've done through the season.
We’ve been the most consistent, the most hardworking team. We showed great quality and great spirit in important moments when maybe we weren’t playing at our best, and that’s a great sign of a champion.
We are a very young team and we will do well in the future. In the first 10 months we won two trophies, so it’s always positive for the confidence of the team and myself to face next season. We have to keep going strong.”
Fabregas is spot on about everything isn't he. It has been those moments that have been the difference this season. The last minute goals against Everton and QPR, the games we struggled in last season have been better for us this year and we haven't lost all season to any of our rivals.
One thing is also key here. It's all well and good celebrating like we have been in recent weeks after having secured the Premier League in addition to the League Cup but we HAVE to get stronger and be ready to go again.
As we continue to celebrate for the next few weeks you can bet your life that Jose Mourinho and the Chelsea Board are already conducting their transfer business ahead of the new season next year. I wouldn't be surprised if deals are done and dusted early just as they were last season.
Our rivals have alot of catching up to do to bridge that gap to Chelsea. Just how much stronger will Chelsea be next season? Let's wait and see what happens.
One thing is for sure, that Champions League exit would have hurt the manager and he will look to put that right next season!
