Former Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas been describing one of his most bittersweet moments in a Blues shirt.
Fabregas commented on a half-volley pass he made to Diego Costa when Blues faced Swansea City in 2015.
The Spaniard’s playmaking ability was vital to Chelsea’s two Premier League title-winning campaigns in 2014/15 and 2016/17.
The Spain international laid on 57 assists during his four-and-a-half years spell, including the remarkable 18 assists he recorded in 2014/15 under Jose Mourinho.
But in a Q&A session on Twitter, he believes the best pass he made at Chelsea did not end up as a goal.
Asked to pick his best assist at Chelsea, he said: “The half volley one to Diego Costa away at Swansea that he missed. I’ll never forgive him for that one.”
This was not the first time the playmaker spoke about Costa’s miss.
In 2015, he told the Telegraph: “I remember assists like a goalscorer remembers goals. I have a soft spot for them. The pass I was disappointed that it wasn’t a goal was the other day against Swansea.
“I hit a volley to leave Diego one-on-one with the goalkeeper and he didn’t score, and I killed him afterwards because it could have been one of my best ever.”
Chelsea won 5-0 in that game and Costa did really well scoring two of those five goals. Although, Fabregas deserved an assist for such an incredible defence-splitting pass.
