England coach Holland appreciates praise from ex-Chelsea star Cesc

Former Chelsea coach Steve Holland has appreciated praise from Cesc Fabregas.

Holland has replied to Cesc, now with Monaco, labelling him England's secret weapon at Euro 2020.

Speaking in an interview with TalkSport, England assistant coach Holland thanked the former Blues midfielder, dubbing him as one of the greatest to play the game.

"Whenever anybody says something nice about you it's good," Holland said. "If a player you ever worked with says something nice, I think that's nicer.

"If it's one of the best players to have ever played the game that says something nice about you, that's even better still."

Holland spent six years at Stamford Bridge, winning two Premier League titles, the League Cup, the FA Cup, the Champions League and the Europa League.

"The fact that one of the players felt I was a positive influence through that was very satisfying, so I appreciated those words."
