Fabregas ‘would love’ to become a Premier League manager as he ‘targets’ role

Fresh from joining Serie B outfit Como on a free transfer, Cesc Fabregas has opened up over his ambitions to become a manager at a Premier League team one day.

The midfielder is a household name in this country after his achievements with Arsenal and Chelsea, winning several trophies such as the World Cup, Premier League and the FA Cup. Now aged 35, Fabregas' career is at its tail end.

But while the Spaniard is thinking about hanging up his boots one day soon – just days after signing for a new club – this is by no means the last time we will see Fabregas in the game.

That is because the former Monaco man has his sights set on sitting in the dugout one day and the Premier League is his aim.

After sealing a move to Como, Fabregas said: "When I become a coach, as I have said, the Premier League has been my league, it is where I played my best football, my best years, where people respect me so much.

"I feel really loved in England and, in the future, I would love [to coach there], why not? I'd love to [be a Premier League manager], 100 per cent. If I can look at a target in some years to come, then definitely, this is in my head."

Fabregas is not quite done yet, though, and believes he has some fuel left in the tank before retiring from football. And he even revealed that there were offers on the table to join a club's coaching staff that he declined.

He said: "I did [receive offers], I'm very grateful for the people that have approached me in the last couple of months. I had two offers to join clubs' coaching staff. It's something tempting but it is not something I want to do right now.

"I want to keep playing a little bit. My main focus now is playing and to do well on the pitch. First thing's first, take one step at a time. I'm here to do well for Como, it's a beautiful project and let's see where we go from there."
