Como, a Serie B team, has appointed former Chelsea and Arsenal player Cesc Fabregas as their interim manager following the departure of Moreno Longo.
Fabregas, having retired as a player with the club last season, steps into the role after coaching their Under-19s side. Mirwan Suwarso, a representative of Como’s ownership group, expressed gratitude to Longo for his dedication during a challenging period last season.
The club aims to embark on a new path, seeking to bring more excitement and entertainment to fans in Como and beyond. Plans include making a new head coach appointment in the near future.
Como, currently in sixth place, is set to face bottom-placed Feralpisalo on November 25, with appreciation for the fans’ understanding, loyalty, and support.
Sterling Commends Chelsea
Raheem Sterling expressed admiration for Chelsea following an exhilarating 4-4 draw against Manchester City.
Despite facing a potential defeat, Cole Palmer’s late penalty secured a well-deserved share of the points at Stamford Bridge. Sterling, who contributed to the scoresheet, commended Mauricio Pochettino’s team, stating, “We challenged one of the most formidable teams of the past years and played with unwavering belief and intensity. While we could have earned more, securing a point against one of the world’s best teams is a significant achievement for us.”
