Chelsea legend, Gianfranco Zola, has heaped praises on the club’s new signing, Enzo Fernandez.
Zola said that Fernandez, who joined Chelsea during the January transfer window, reminds him of ex-Blues midfielder Cesc Fabregas.
Recall that Chelsea secured the signing of Fernandez, a 2022 FIFA World winner, in a £106.8 million deal from Benfica.
Chelsea’s acquisition of the Argentina international from Benfica saw the 22-year-old become the British record signing, surpassing Manchester City’s Jack Grealish.
Fernandez has made a strong start to his spell at Chelsea, impressing with his excellent passing range and technical abilities in Chelsea’s last two games.
“I was so impressed with his qualities. The speed of mind when he is playing… In a way, he reminds me of Cesc Fabregas,” Zola told Football Daily.
