With the curtain having come down on Cesc Fabregas’s Chelsea career, the player has written on his social media accounts to the Blues’ owner, players, staff and fans.
His message is below:
'It's with mixed emotions that I am writing this message. To everyone at Chelsea Football Club. The owner Mr Abramovich who brought me here, to my teammates who helped me win so many trophies, to the staff who made my time here so easy and to all you fans who made me feel so special week in week out. It has been an incredible journey and it is with great sadness that I must say goodbye. I will miss you all and wish you the best of luck for the future.'
Fabregas’s time at Chelsea will be remembered for many highlights, including plenty of trophies lifted.
He won two Premier League titles plus the FA Cup and the League Cup while with the Blues, and his outstanding passes and many assists will stay long in the memory. He registered over 100 in the Premier League for Chelsea and Arsenal combined.
Below is a selection of our favourite supplies for his team-mates to score goals, with his fellow Spain internationals Pedro and Diego Costa benefitting especially. And to cap the lot of them there is his first Chelsea assist of all.
