Fabregas never imagined working with Mourinho

Cesc Fabregas has shed light on his spectacular start at Chelsea, and claims he never thought he would get the chance to work with Jose Mourinho.

The 27-year-old has become an instrumental figure for the Blues this term since his £30m move to Stamford Bridge last summer, and has weighed in with 15 assists.

Fabregas fostered a strong disdain for Mourinho during his eight-year spell at Arsenal and a three-year stay at Barcelona.

The Spaniard has enjoyed a renaissance under the Portuguese tactician, but he admits working with him was beyond his wildest dreams.

"Three years ago I wouldn't have imagined working under Mourinho," Fabregas said.

"But in the end, life has many turns, and more so in football.

"We had a big rivalry with Mou (Mourinho), we were against him but I never hated him."

Fabregas admitted Chelsea were always the team he wanted to beat during his time with the Gunners.

"Chelsea was the team that I wanted to beat the most," he added. 

"I also had a lot of spats with (John) Terry but in the end, we are people.

"I'm not driven by hate."
