The 29 year old Spanish international is facing the factor of the faster paced game, but he is determined to give up and he trying hard to match the criteria.


The Blues midfielder thinks now is today’s game talented players become marginalized, now days the faster and fitter players can proffer by the managers.

Cesc Fabregas is excellent on  the ball and there is no doubt about his ability on that and also he plays in the club like Arsenal, Barcelona and now he is with Chelsea but still now in the Chelsea squad he is not the regular player, and not getting the first team football what he wants.

But now the new Blues boss Conte is using N’Golo Kante and Nemanja Matic in the center of the midfield, these two players is doing their defensive duties, and now the Spaniard player is left aside.

The 29 year old Spaniard player blubbers and accepts the new form of football,

Also thinks that it will help him to grow as a player.

He added: “Today it’s more difficult for the more talented players to succeed,”

“I don’t think my physical abilities are the best – I’m not the quickest, I’m not the strongest, I’m not the sharpest, so you have to be ahead of the game if a player like me wants to succeed in football.

“To be a football player today… if you are very strong or you run a lot or stuff like that it’s easier. That’s why I try to get even better because football is growing in a way that before I don’t think it was. 

“Everyday you see less talent and more power and players running around.”

This season the 29 year old player has made 19 appearances for the Blues and scored 4 goals for them in all the competition.
