After seeing his team mate and international team mate Cesc Fabregas booed off of the pitch at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, Pedro Rodriguez has spoken out and backed the man with the "magic hat" to win over the Chelsea faithful.
I have had my say on what happened to Costa and Fabregas here and it's interesting to see that people who had accused Fabregas of wrong doing have come out and acknowledged that they made a mistake after Jose Mourinho admitted that Fabregas had nothing to do with the reported player unrest in the dressing room!
Despite that, the situation on Saturday was horrible for Fabregas. I can imagine that it's not a nice feeling hearing that as you walk off of the pitch, especially as you have done nothing wrong!
Well I say he has done nothing wrong, but he has along with everyone else in a Chelsea shirt (apart from Willian) by under performing and being utter shit this season for one reason or another.
So to Pedro and the crowd reaction. He has known Cesc for a long, long time and he backs his mate to come through the reaction and to win over the Chelsea boo-boys who were singing his name just a few months ago!
"It was difficult for him but he can get through this.
He is strong mentally and very competitive. Cesc is a top player, a very good character in the team, he is a winner and it's good he plays for us.
I understand why the fans are so upset. It's normal when the team and coach are in this position."
The thing is, Guus Hiddink will need the likes of Cesc Fabregas this season to pull us out of the mess we have dug ourselves in so far. A team including Cesc Fabregas is a better team without him in the side in my opinion and that is by playing him in the right position.
As I have stated here, I sincerely hope that Guus Hiddink sees what I can see and makes a tactical switch to a formation that suits the players we have in the squad rather than try and fit square pegs into round holes - 4-3-3.
Cesc Fabregas would excel in my opinion playing with someone next to him with licence to get up and down the pitch with the comfort and safety of Nemanja Matic/Obi Mikel sitting in the Makelele role.
I really, really hope that Fabregas can put what happened on Saturday behind him and that it doesn't affect him too much.
