Cesc Fabregas has revealed that Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is the best manager that he has played under.

Fabregas, who rose to prominence under Arsene Wenger at Arsenal before joining Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona in 2011, won his maiden Premier League title in the Blues’ 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday.

It was the 28-year-old’s second trophy in his first season with Chelsea, having won the Capital One Cup in March, and the Spaniard says that “magic” Mourinho has the edge over his previous mentors.

“He (Mourinho) just loves winning,” he told reporters. “I’m not just saying other managers I have played under don’t, but he has some edge that goes above anyone else I have ever been with.

“The mentality shows every single training session, or game. I now understand why he has won what he has won in his career.

“Yes, Mourinho has a touch of magic, 100 per cent. He knows how to manage a team, he knows how to get the best out of you, and that’s what you want from a manager. 100 per cent.”
