Euro 2020: Fabregas reveals player that forced him out of Chelsea
Monaco playmaker, Cesc Fabregas, has admitted the arrival of Jorginho sped up his exit from Chelsea.
Fabregas left Stamford Bridge in January 2019, ending his five-year stay at the club, as he was deemed surplus to requirements by Maurizio Sarri.
The 34-year-old made only six Premier League appearances that season, as Sarri opted for a three-man midfield with Jorginho being the focal point.
Fabregas however praised Jorginho ahead of Italy’s 3-0 win over Turkey in their Euro 2020.
He said on BBC One: “One of the biggest reasons I left Chelsea is because of him (Jorginho).
“He’s a very smart player, intelligent, a very good passer of the ball. The only thing I can say about him sometimes is he releases the ball too quickly when he can play forward.
