Cesc Fabregas has played under some of the best managers in the world, and the former Arsenal midfielder is still in active football as he winds down his career at the second division Italian side, Como.
He is a part-owner of the club, and it would not be a surprise if he were to go into management when he stops playing.
The Spaniard has won some of the world’s biggest trophies, and he believes the modern manager lacks a key attribute that helped Arsene Wenger to succeed in his career.
The midfielder told the Daily Mail:
“I always spoke up, gave my opinion, I’ve had discussions with players, with coaches, always in a constructive way. Giving your honest opinion.
“Arsene was always very open with communication, very open to dialogue – ‘What do you think about this?’ – asking questions. He was always testing you mentally.”
Just Arsenal Opinion
Wenger is one of the best-ever football managers, and Arsenal benefited the most from his expertise.
Having played under some of the best managers around, Fabregas is qualified to make a case for Wenger having a key attribute that is missing in the game today.
If he becomes a coach, we expect him to incorporate this into his managerial style.
