Cesc Fabregas has spoken of his satisfaction with life at Chelsea while issuing a warning to young players making their way in the game.
Fabregas has been back in London for three years after returning to the Premier League following a spell back at Barcelona, where he grew up prior to joining Arsenal as a 16-year-old.
Since moving to Stamford Bridge, the Spain midfielder has won two Premier League titles, and despite missing his family in Catalonia, he insists he remains content with the Blues.
“I have found absolute happiness at Chelsea,” he told Vanity Fair. “My family is delighted, they have totally adapted to life in London – I’m too happy to change clubs. I just miss my family and my friends in Barcelona.”
Fabregas also gave an insight into what it takes to make it at the highest level and told youngsters not to “look at your bank account” when making decisions during the early stages of their careers
“You can get distracted by fame and money or the wrong type of people,” Fabregas said. “I have seen young people with tremendous talent fail.
“And, to the contrary, I’ve seen less gifted players triumph on the basis of their attitude and commitment. Have a good head. Being surrounded by people who really love you is very important.”
