Chelsea boss Mourinho enjoys Arsenal swipe over Cesc deal

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has taken a dig at Arsenal over his swoop for former Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas.

The Spaniard's move to Stamford Bridge came as a shock given his emotional ties with the Gunners, who he captained.

"How did I persuade him? I spoke to him for about 20 minute," said Mourinho.

"I think he really wanted to come. Arsenal had an option where they could interfere, but I don't' think he was open to that. He was in our direction so it was easy for me."
