Cesc Fabregas wants Premier League management role

Cesc Fabregas is hoping to manage in the Premier League once he finishes his playing career.

The veteran Spanish midfielder enjoyed a successful career in England with both Arsenal and Chelsea and revealed that he would like to coach in the country.

Fabregas told Sky Sports News: "When I become a coach, as I have said, the Premier League has been my league, it is where I played my best football, my best years, where people respect me so much.

"I feel really loved in England and, in the future, I would love (to coach there), why not? I'd love to be a Premier League manager, 100 per cent. If I can look at a target in some years to come, then definitely, this is in my head."

Fabregas - who recently signed for Serie B club Como - believes that his former club Arsenal have a bright future with coach Mikel Arteta and technical director Edu.

He said: "I think Mikel is doing a good job, I think Edu is doing a fantastic job. When we talk about football people, Edu is a football man.

"He has the patience and knows exactly what it takes to build a project. You cannot do it one day; sometimes the market doesn't allow you to get the right players, sometimes you are too young to compete, as it happened at Arsenal for one or two years.

"But I think Arsenal are now mature, the young players are not so young anymore. I see a different phase; they have signed very well, they strengthened the team in certain areas they are struggling, and I am really looking forward to the season because it's exciting."
