Chelsea vs Atletico Madrid: How Fabregas changed my mind - Conte

Fabregas worried about Chelsea future last season

The Spain worldwide fought his way back into the team, as the Blues won the Premier League title.

Yet Fabregas was initially out of favour last season in Conte's first campaign.

"From then on we started to create a relationship, and I think I would say now that my relationship with the manager is fantastic".

"Well, I would be lying if I say that I wasn't anxious", said Fabregas, speaking ahead of Tuesday's Champions League Group C clash with Atletico Madrid. I wasn't playing, not really part of the manager's initial plans and at that point you can do two things - just give up and accept you're not part of the team or the club in the future. The first part of the season I chose to play nearly every game with (N'Golo) Kante and (Nemanja) Matic but in the second part of the season I think Cesc played a lot of the games.

"I must say I'm very proud of this".

"This season he has continued to work very hard, showed me great commitment and behaviour and the coach has to make the best decision". I understood his philosophies, his methods of training, and I adapted very well. I'm enjoying my football.

Ahead of Tuesday's final Champions League group match against Atletico Madrid, Cesc Fabregas has played more than any other Chelsea midfielder this season in terms of minutes on the pitch.

The 30-year-old's contract expires at the end of the 2018/19 season but he says that talks about a possible extension can wait until the summer.

"Last season the boss might not have trusted me to play in a 3-4-3 but he does now".

"I have reached quite a few semi-finals, I lost the final in a very cruel way, but it is a competition you need to be lucky in, to be very consistent, very strong and hopefully it can be Chelsea's year".
