The midfielder had never played as little in his career as in 21/22. Received invitations to take on another role, but want to end it differently
The Principality will soon cease to be the “home” of Cesc Fàbregas. The Spanish midfielder, whose contract with Monaco expires in June, has announced the end of the affair, also of his own free will, with the Ligue 1 club, which has made him doubly unhappy.
“I will not renew. I want to leave, I need a change. It was not only the worst year of my career, but also of my life. When you are not happy in football, you can’t be happy in I suffered a lot, it was very complicated mentally,” the 35-year-old midfielder told So Foot magazine.
Fàbregas, who has played just five games for Monaco in 2021/22 – a minimum record in his long career – also assumed he refused to hang up his boots after a season of bad memories, despite receiving several contacts for join technical teams.
“I’ve had two, three calls in the last two weeks from former coaches asking me if I want to join them as an assistant, but this year has been so bad that I can’t end it like this, account given the career I’ve built enjoying football and continuing to be competitive,” added Fàbregas, who represented Arsenal, Barcelona and Chelsea, in addition to La Roja, before joining Monaco in 2018.
The midfielder, author of a remarkable career, has 16 titles, including a World Cup, two European Championships and two Premier Leagues.
