Chelsea's Tejera: Cesc my inspiration

Chelsea superkid Sergio Tejera admits Arsenal's Cesc Fabregas is his inspiration.

Tejera was snapped up by Chelsea last year from Espanyol and said: "I hope to make my debut someday in the first team. You see Cesc at Arsenal and think that it can be you. If he has done it, you also can do it.

"He is an example to follow. In addition, some of my (Chelsea youth) teammates already have done it and I came here for this. I am convinced that it will happen.

"I have no regrets coming here. The only problem is that you're not considered for Spain because the coaches won't come to watch you. But I wouldn't change a thing, I am very lucky."
