With his recent appointment to Serie B side Como, former Gunner Cesc Fabregas becomes the most recent former professional to transition into management.
He follows in the footsteps of recent graduates Mikel Arteta of Arsenal, Vincent Kompany of Burnley, and Wayne Rooney of Birmingham City, to mention a few.
Como 1907 are currently eight points behind Parma, the league leaders, in sixth place. Following Como’s breakup with Moreno Longo, Fabregas inherits management duties in an interim capacity.
In the summer of 2022, Fabregas signed a contract to become a player for Como, as part of the deal he agreed to part ownership of the club – ex-teammate and Arsenal legend Thierry Henry also followed suit, gaining partial ownership as well.
After declaring his retirement, he began coaching the Under 19 team, but for the first time in his career, he is now promoted to the first team.
League responsibilities are pulled for the domestic leagues due to the ongoing international break. Fabregas will have to wait until the 25th of November, when Como hosts FeralpiSalò at Home, Stadio Giuseppe Sinigaglia, in Serie B.
