One of the best players playing in England was him, everyone knows that. Sad for everybody when you lose this kind of player, this kind of person, but I think everybody has to stand up and clap the hands for him because he deserves it.“It’s always difficult to lose players, especially like him, because like I say he’s a world-class player but also I understand it’s part of the process, and if it’s better for him and better for the club, we have to understand that.”Fabregas won two Premier League titles, a League Cup and an FA Cup with Chelsea, and Luiz said it was that champion’s assertiveness that would remain in the memory.“I think he won everything with this club. My memories are always going to be with the world-class player, with the great technique, he’s a great guy.“He has experience. He knows football, I think he had the opportunity to learn in many different changing rooms when he was so young, before, so he brings always a confidence, energy for the team, and then in the pitch he showed that it doesn’t matter the game, he’s always going to show his qualities. Sad. It’s really sad for us. We are wishing him all the best, because he deserves it.” last_img read more
