Cesc Fabregas reveals Pep Guardiola ‘disappointment’ and why Jose Mourinho is a ‘friend’

Fabregas considers Mourinho a friend

Despite sharing animosity during their previous meetings with Arsenal and Chelsea and then between Real Madrid and Barcelona, Fabregas revealed how he grew close with Mourinho after both linked up at Stamford Bridge.

“Mourinho inspired me the most when I left Barca,” Fabregas added. “He told me that we had had our issues on the pitch when he was at Chelsea and I was at Arsenal and then when he was coaching at Real Madrid and I was at Barcelona, but that for him, it all ended there. We turned the page.
