‘Foot­ball No More About Tal­ent’

The Economic Times - - Sports: The Great Games -

Cesc Fabre­gas has as­serted that “tal­ented” play­ers are be­com­ing in­creas­ingly marginalised in the mod­ern game, with fit­ter, faster and more pow­er­ful play­ers be­ing pre­ferred across 90 min­utes. “To­day it’s more dif­fi­cult for the more tal­ented play­ers to suc­ceed,” he told Chelsea TV. “I don’t think my phys­i­cal abil­i­ties are the best — I’m not the quick­est, I’m not the strong­est, I’m not the sharpest, so you’ve to be ahead of the game if a player like me wants to suc­ceed in foot­ball. “To be a foot­ball player to­day... if you’re very strong or you run a lot or stuff like that it’s eas­ier. That’s why I try to get even bet­ter be­cause foot­ball is grow­ing in a way that be­fore I don’t think it was.”
