Cesc Fabregas Snubs Chelsea, Set To Be Handed Long-term Managerial Job At Italian Side Como


    Cesc Fabregas has snubbed the opportunity to be included amongst Chelsea’s coaching staff, with his sole attention understood to be on Italian side Como.

    Fabregas is on the brink of penning a new long-term deal as manager of the newly promoted Serie A side following an excellent tactical display in the 2023/24 season.

    Cesc Fabregas worked as an assistant during the 2023/24 season under manager Osian Roberts, who was formerly the Technical Director of North African nation, Morocco.

    Roberts is expected to vacate his role as head coach of the Italian side on June 30, 2024, with Fabregas getting the step up to become boss of Como.

    Osian Roberts alongside Fabregas worked hand-in-hand to secure promotion for the Lombardy-based club, with the team securing their ticket for the Serie A on the final day of the 2023/24 Serie B campaign, after playing a 1-1 draw with Cosenza.

    Cesc Fabregas alongside Thierry Henry are part owners of the Italian side, but the former is more involved with the on-pitch side of things, while the latter is primarily concerned with administrative dealings.

    Cesc Fabregas Turns Down Opportunity To Join Chelsea’s Coaching Staff, Fixated On Managerial Job At Como

    Meanwhile, reports earlier indicated that Chelsea were willing to offer him a role as one of the coaching staff at the club, but he has apparently turned the opportunity down to prove his mettle at the top level of Italian football.

    Cesc Fabregas has previously worked as caretaker Manager of Como between November and December 2023, with the Spaniard taking charge of 5 matches, winning 3, losing 1, and drawing 1.

    The 37-year-old was also assistant manager of the Italian club between July 2023 and November 2023.

    Como secured promotion to the top flight for the first time since 2003 alongside Parma, who finished at the summit of Serie B, and Venezia, who claimed promotion via the playoffs.

    It will be fascinating to see how Fabregas tactically outwits his opposition, given the remarkable list of Spanish managers (in Serie A and outside Serie A), who are doing great for themselves, namely; Pep Guardiola, Mikel Arteta, and Unai Emery amongst others.

    Cesc Fabregas retired from professional football at the end of the 2022/23 season, following a nearly 2-decade-long stellar career.

    The former Arsenal man won several trophies during his playing career, including; 1 FIFA World Cup, 2 European Championship, and 1 UEFA Europa League.

    Fabregas played for several top clubs in his career, including; Barcelona, Chelsea, and AS Monaco.

    Cesc Fabregas made 737 club career appearances, scoring 125 goals and providing 213 assists in all competitions.

    Internationally, the man, who functioned primarily as a central midfielder during his playing days, made 110 appearances for Spain, scoring 15 goals and providing 36 assists across all competitions.

    Anyway, Fabregas will be hoping to build an astonishing managerial career that will be better than his playing career.
