Cesc Fabregas on His Former Manager Jose Mourinho: "I love him"

Share

It's 11 years since Jose Mourinho led Chelsea to the last of five trophies won during his first spell with the club. Arsenal were on top of us and I think they deserved to win.

Manchester United and Chelsea will play the FA Cup final this Saturday in what will be the season's final game. Having missed out on Champions League football for next season, many expect the Wembley showpiece to be the Italian's final match in charge at Stamford Bridge, regardless of the outcome.

According to Manchester United Evening News, the Portuguese boss wants to bolster his attack even further after falling short against local neighbors Manchester City in the Premier League this season. The Daily Express says Conte will have a selection decision to make between strikers Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata. Nothing against Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois, whose future is unclear as he continues to stall on signing a new contract, but De Gea walks into this XI.

Alexis Sanchez's career at Manchester United has not quite taken off just yet but, three months after arriving from Arsenal, the Chilean has a great opportunity to win over supporters. On Saturday, Matic can show Chelsea what they are missing. It remains to be seen whether Marouane Fellaini is fit enough to make the bench on Saturday.

McTominay, who only broke into the team a year ago, was not involved when United beat Crystal Palace 2-1 in the 2016 final. BT's coverage starts at 4pm and the BBC's starts at 5pm.

The BBC have gone full football overload on Saturday with various programmes devoted to the lovely game - including, "Motty - The Man Behind the Sheepskin" - being beamed out across the day.

When things are going well, all these things feed into a team's morale and right now, Chelsea are a pale shadow of the united group which won the Premier League under Conte a year ago. The early years of Fabregas's stint at Arsenal coincided with Mourinho's arrival as manager of Chelsea, while he was also part of a Barcelona side that was vying for Spanish supremacy with Mourinho's Real Madrid.

"This club is about titles, about trophies, it's about finals", the Spaniard said. Ray had a longstanding affinity with the competition, winning it as both a player and as an assistant manager.

Best man plans instead of the cup final?

It is hard to call this fixture - let alone this being an FA Cup final at a crucial juncture for both managers and clubs. An FA spokesperson told the BBC: "We wish the Duke and the happy couple a wonderful day".
