Cesc Fabregas’ reaction to being left out World Cup revealed – Daily News

March 26, 2020

  Cesc Fabregas has revealed his reaction to Julen Lopetegui leaving him out of Spain’s 23-man squad for the World Cup  The Chelsea midfielder was overlooked alongside his Blues team-mates Alvaro Morata and Marcos Alonso, as Lopetegui selected a Barcelona and Real Madrid heavy midfield  To make matters worse Lopetegui was recently relived of his duties as Spain boss, just days before their first game of this summer’s finals, with Fernando Hierro taking the reins  If the decision had been made only a few weeks earlier, Fabregas may well have received a call-up, but he is instead working as a BBC pundit for Spain’s opening group clash with European champions Portugal  Speaking to Gary Lineker about why he feels he was overlooked when Lopetegui was finalising his Spain team for Russia, the midfielder was gracious in being snubbed  “He just wanted to try and give opportunities to the younger players who he worked with in the Under-21s and Under-19s and fair play to him,” said Fabregas  “They did well, they’ve played well for two years.  “They qualified in style and they deserve the opportunity as well I just have to wait and keep working.” poll loading Are Spain going to win this World Cup? 500+ VOTES SO FAR YES NOT AFTER THIS
