Fabregas: Del Bosque always fair

Cesc Fabregas has reflected on Spain’s experimentation in attack and assured that under Vicente del Bosque, ‘there are few injustices’.

Debate has centred in recent months on La Roja’s strikers, who should start and whether it should be with a No 9 striker or with a ‘false 9’ tactic.

Roberto Soldado started Spain’s opening Confederations Cup game against Uruguay, ahead of Fernando Torres and David Villa.

For Fabregas, who is also in contention for a spot in a strikerless attacking set-up or how he played closer to midfield against Uruguay, there is trust in what the team’s Coach decides.

“In football, there are few injustices,” began Fabregas in reflection to reporters today.

“A Coach is always going to be honest with those that he believes are better and, in that sense, our Coach has never been tied to anyone.

“Decisions have always been for the benefit of the team and from there we have done very well.

“The false 9 system serves basically to have superiority in the centre of the field, you drop back to help the midfielders, in order to help build up play.

“When the ball is in the final third, then you have the function of a forward, to attack and finish.

“The Coach has been testing for a couple of years with the attack, with me, with Torres, with Soldado, with Villa, with Negredo, and whatever he has tried has worked because we have won the World Cup and European Championship.”
