Cesc Fabregas: Football has become a 'robot' game

He was one of the most important players in Spain in the campaign for the world and European title, he successfully played for Arsenal, Barcelona and Chelsea, and since 2019, Cesc Fabregas is ending his career in the Monaco jersey.

And he mourns seeing what football has turned into The 34-year-old Spaniard is known for his great control of the ball and the pass, in his best days he was among the leading creatives of the game, but today he remembers that time with the sadness In an interview with Marca, he was asked to compare football then and now.

Without hesitation, he poured criticism ... 'Football has changed a lot. A lot! The change started about five years ago and is now clearly visible. I had various coaches, but it's not about one or two, but four or five.

The change has happened and will remain so. Today's methodology is based on automatism, it basically comes down to the coach telling you where to pass the ball at all times, the players are exactly in place. Football is a robot game today, "Fabregas said.

The trophy football player points out that in today's football, too much attention is paid to physical fitness. "Many coaches are obsessed with numbers. If you don't reach certain numbers - you are not ready to play, and if you are resting, you also need to have certain numbers to maintain the level.

Sometimes I am 'old school' in that regard, but I experienced great moments in my career. I've come to without hard training or a great physical and mental season. Today they think that if you don't train you can't be good.

It's all based on science, numbers and GPS," Fabregas said.

Fabregas career

The Spaniard has only five appearances this season in the Monaco jersey, and although his contract expires in the summer, he says that he would like to play for some more time.

When he finishes, he plans to dedicate himself to coaching. "I would like to try my hand as a coach. I like to analyze matches and rivals, but I don't know when that will happen. I would like to play for some time."

As the future of world football, Cesc Fabregas points out Kylian Mbappe and welcomes the idea of ​​signing for Real Madrid. "What he does, the strength he has, I haven't seen in many. He has a shot and a finish like Ronaldo and Henry.

He has that positive arrogance with which he says that he is the best and that he is aware of that. That feeds him ... He is only 22 years old, so he has 14 more at the top level, if injuries bypass him. I have no contact with Real Madrid, but if it is true that he will move there, I think it is great for him, as well as for Spanish football. He could break many records, "Fabregas concluded.
