Micah Richards’ Revelation: Cesc Fabregas, the Premier League’s Forgotten Genius!


Micah Richards highlights the forgotten legend of a Premier League legend, Cesc Fabregas. The pundit believes that Fabregas is among the best midfielders the English league ever saw. The Spaniard announced his retirement last year after an incredible career as a player. He is now the assistant manager of Italian side Como and has been spotted back at Arsenal on a few occasions as well.

Fabregas joined Arsenal back in 2003 from Barcelona when he was a kid. It was Arsene Wenger who identified him and gave him a real break at Highbury. Moreover, he was a part of a dressing room containing Denis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry. He was also the captain for the Gunners before returning to Barcelona in 2011. On his return to the Premier League, Fabregas won two titles, an FA Cup and the Europa League with Chelsea. He was magnificent during his time there as well.

Richards remembers the forgotten hero: Cesc Fabregas

Speaking on The Rest is Football podcast, the ex-City star raves about the Spanish midfielder. He claims that the Spanish international was one of the finest no.10 tye Premier League has ever witnessed. He said,

“I think when we talk about midfielders, we’ve got to put him right up there. He sort of gets skipped by from time to time. Fabregas was the original in terms of getting on the ball, going into a deep position, never give the ball away, then he played a little bit more advanced.

Sometimes, during his time at Barcelona, he was playing a little bit more advanced which probably couldn’t get the best out of him. But, in the Premier League, he certainly goes down in the top 10.”

There may be some who would argue that Fabregas is not the best of his generation. Nevertheless, he was still a midfielder with a great vision, a marvellous man on the ball with a touch of scoring and assisting. He is definitely up in the list with some of the best midfielders country has ever witnessed.
