Cesc Fabregas Has Invented A New Way Of Passing A Football | WATCH

Cesc Fabregas

Cesc Fabregas has made a name for himself as a pass-master and a technically exceptional footballer but he’s now a revolutionary too.

The World Cup winner made the move to struggling Monaco from Chelsea in the January transfer window and produced a composed display on his debut against Marseille.

And last night, he starred as the Principality club recorded a huge 2-0 victory over third-placed Lyon to give them a huge boost in their bid to avoid relegation from the second tier.

But beyond that, he also conjured up a pass that we genuinely cannot comprehend. All we can say is that by almost standing on the ball with his left foot, the former Arsenal captain fooled Tanguy Ndombele and played the ball right into the path of Aleksandr Golovin.

Even the man himself is still in awe of the wizardry and sauce he displayed. And when questioned whether he meant it or if it was a heavy touch, he assured us all that his innovation was intentional.

While we can’t quite explain what he’s done exactly or how he’s performed it, we’re big fans of the magic-like imagination the former Barcelona man exhibited.

Another high-profile instance of when innovation in a football match came last year when Cristiano Ronaldo scored one of the weirdest penalties ever in the Champions League last 16 first leg win over Paris Saint-Germain.

Ronaldo made no mistake from the spot, with Alphonse Areola getting close to it but the power in the strike being enough for Ronaldo to continue his record of scoring in every Champions League game this season.

At first, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s penalty looked to be as ordinary as they come but replays showed that before he’d actually struck the ball, it had bounced on the spot.

However, it wasn’t exactly black magic that led to the bizarre spot-kick. According to his former teammate Rio Ferdinand, who was in the BT Sport studio covering the game, Ronaldo used to practice that unusual technique in Manchester United training.

Lionel Messi Blasts Barcelona For ‘Throwing’ Luis Suárez Out Of The Club

Published

on

Lionel Messi has launched a fresh attack on Barcelona’s hierarchy for the way the club treated his close friend Luis Suárez after the striker left for rival club, Atlético Madrid.

The Argentine playmaker, who threatened to leave Barça last month and recently hit out at the club’s president Josep Maria Bartomeu’s leadership, said Suárez was harshly treated and ‘thrown out’ of the club.

In an emotional goodbye post dedicated to Suarez, the club’s third-highest scorer of all time, Messi wrote: “I had already begun to imagine it but today I went into the dressing room and it truly dawned on me. It’s going to be so difficult to not continue to share every day with you both on the pitches and away from them.

“We’re going to miss you so much. We spent many years together, many mates, many lunches and many dinners. So many things we will never forget, all the time we spent together.

“It will be strange to see you in another shirt and much more to come up against you on the pitch. You deserved a farewell that fit with who you are: one of the most important players in the history of the club. Someone who achieved great things for the team and on an individual level.

“You did not deserve for them to throw you out as they did. But the truth is that at this stage nothing surprises me anymore.”

Ya me venía haciendo la idea pero hoy entré al vestuario y me cayó la ficha de verdad. Que difícil va a ser no seguir compartiendo el día a día con vos, tanto en las canchas como afuera. Los vamos a extrañar muchísimo. Fueron muchos años, muchos mates, comidas, cenas… Muchas cosas que nunca se van a olvidar, todos los días juntos. Va a ser raro verte con otra camiseta y mucho más enfrentarte. Te merecías que te despidan como lo que sos: uno de los jugadores más importantes de la historia del club, consiguiendo cosas importantes tanto en lo grupal como individualmente. Y no que te echen como lo hicieron. Pero la verdad que a esta altura ya no me sorprende nada. Te deseo todo lo mejor en este nuevo desafío. Te quiero mucho, los quiero mucho. Hasta pronto, amigo.

On Thursday, an emotional Suarez said goodbye to Barcelona and paid tribute to Messi after sealing a switch to Atletico Madrid. The Uruguay international had previously made it clear that he wanted to stay and see out his contract but was told by Barca’s new coach Ronald Koeman that his playing days were over at the club.

Suarez helped the club win four LaLiga titles, four Copa del Rey crowns, and the Champions League in 2015. He scored 195 goals and provided 113 assists in 283 outings for the club before his exit.
