Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas is reportedly taking legal action against pundit Pat Nevin. Nevin, who spent five years with Chelsea, made a claim that Fabregas was the player who said he would ‘rather lose than win’ for Jose Mourinho.
His comment on BBC Radio Four’s flagship Today programme last week, with Fabregas’ form dipping considerably this season. Presenter Garry Richardson, who stated a senior player didn’t care about results under Mourinho, brought the topic up to which Nevin replied: “Yeah, that was Cesc Fabregas, wasn’t it?” And now Fabregas is set to take legal action against the pundit for the remarks ,reports the Daily Mail. Fabregas was one of a number of Chelsea players booed by supporters during Saturday’s win over Sunderland. He is seen to have under-performed this term with the Premier League champions languishing at the foot of the table.
Mourinho was axed last week and Fabregas was quick to take to social media, revealing his sadness at the departure.
