Chelsea head coach, Jose Mourinho has lashed out at Arsenal fans, insisting Cesc Fabregasopted for the Blues over Arsenal because of the assurance of winning trophies.

Arsenal fans had demanded that the banner with the image of former captain and playmaker of the team, Cesc Fabregas on Ken Friar Bridge at theEmirate Stadium, be removed.

Speaking recently, Mourinho said. ‘I know why he chose Chelsea. I don’t know why he didn’t choose Arsenal. I only know what we promised him and what he promised us.’

‘I can’t talk about why he left Arsenal, why he didn’t go back. I don’t know if it was his decision or the manager’s decision. We promised him a team, built in the style to suit his play, normally good projects go in hand with titles and he was looking for that.’ He added.

Cesc Fabregas, who started his youth career with Arsenal in 2003, won only 2004–05 FA Cup and FA Community Shield in 2004, before heading toBarcelona in 2011, where he took home one La Liga, Copa del Rey, UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and two Supercopa de España.

Since his return to England in 2014 to play forChelsea, he has won only the Football League Cup.

Chelsea will face Arsenal on Sunday, April 26, 2015, in the second leg of a Premier League game.
