Chelsea boss Antonio Conte: 'Cesc Fabregas changed my mind about him'

Fabregas' impact on Chelsea's title winning campaign was crucial last season, and when you consider the fact he provided an unbelievable 12 assists in just 13 starts, it's easy to see how he won his manager around.

Conte was dismissed just before half time for disputing a decision by referee Neil Swarbrick in at Stamford Bridge.

But Fabregas said he was concerned about his future at the club during the start of 2016-17. "Maybe anxious is not the right word but you can imagine", he said ahead of his side's Champions League clash against Atletico Madrid. "In this season he has continued to work very hard and he's shown me great commitment, great behaviours". "For me, Swansea was wasting time". I understood his philosophies, his methods of training, and I adapted very well.

"But I can tell you today Conte is extremely happy with Alvaro Morata, and I think that is down to Morata and is also down to the fantastic work they do at Cobham".

Fabregas, who was a member of the Arsenal side that lost to Barcelona in the 2006 Champions League final, will be 32 when his present contract is up in 2019 and Chelsea policy is to only offer one year contracts to players aged 30 and over. I said this a few times to the fourth official, but I didn't see anything change.

To go with five English teams into the next round, that means the level of the league is very high.

Emenalo left the Blues last month to take up a new position at Monaco after spending 10 years working alongside owner Roman Abramovich. He trusts me, I know what he wants from me and I know exactly what I can give to the team. "When the moment comes to talk about different things I'll be here, ready for it". "It's not the right time, it's time to focus on Chelsea, keep playing well and deliver points".
