Cesc: Chelsea boss Mourinho has me enjoying football again

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas says Jose Mourinho has him loving his football again.

Fabregas joined Chelsea from Barcelona for £30million in the summer after three years at the Nou Camp.

He told Chelsea Magazine this month: "Of course when Jose Mourinho came in, it was a big chance for me.

"I had a really good time at Barcelona but I wanted to feel the way I'm feeling now - someone who can really give something positive to the team and feel that I am important.

"This is a big thing for me and when I spoke to the boss [about the transfer], he made me feel all those things and told me what I wanted to hear, what I needed to hear."
