FABREGAS ISN'T LEADING REVOLT AGAINST MOURINHO - PIQUE
The Barcelona defender says there is no way
there can be truth to rumours suggesting his
former team-mate is at the forefront of any
dressing-room discontent at Chelsea.
Barcelona defender Gerard Pique says it is
"impossible" his former team-mate Cesc
Fabregas could be leading a rebellion against
Jose Mourinho at Chelsea.
The Blues have suffered seven defeats from
their 12 games in the Premier League this
season and reports in the UK have claimed
Fabregas is at the head of a dressing-room
revolt against the club's Portuguese manager.
Goal understands only a few players at
Stamford Bridge are now fully behind the former
Real Madrid boss, but Pique insists Fabregas is
not part of the revolt that has left the 52-year-
old on the brink in his second spell in west
"I know Cesc well and there's absolutely no
chance of that," Pique told Goal following
Barca's victory over Villarreal on Sunday.
"We already know the British media likes to
speculate, but I know what Cesc is like and it is
impossible he is acting this way."
Pique and Fabregas came through the youth
system together at Barcelona and remain close
friends. The pair also featured in the first team
together at Camp Nou between 2011 and 2014
when the former Arsenal midfielder returned to
the Premier League with Chelsea.
