On July 1st, 2023, at the age of 36, Cesc Fabregas, a former midfielder for Chelsea and Arsenal in the Premier League, announced his retirement. He will now venture into coaching, taking charge of Como B and youth teams.
Fabregas graced the pitches for Arsenal, Barcelona, Chelsea, Monaco, and Como during his remarkable 20-year journey, amassing an impressive 738 club appearances. His accolades include 15 club and international championships, notably Spain’s historic World Cup triumph.

During his tenure at Arsenal, he played an additional 303 games, contributing to an FA Cup victory and a runner-up finish in the Champions League.
After a spell at Barcelona from 2011 to 2013, where he secured La Liga and Copa del Rey triumphs, Fabregas returned to England to join Chelsea in 2014. Over five seasons at Stamford Bridge, he clinched the League Cup, FA Cup, and two Premier League titles.
In 2019, the Spanish maestro embarked on a new adventure at Monaco Football Club in France, spending four fruitful seasons before heading to Como FC in Serie B for the 2022-2023 campaign.
As he transitions from a remarkable playing career to coaching, Cesc Fabregas is set to make his mark at Como FC, taking the first steps into a new chapter.
