Cesc Fabregas, the former football star known for his stints at Arsenal, Chelsea, and Barcelona, is poised to step into his inaugural coaching position by taking over as the head coach for Como in Serie B.
Following Moreno Longo’s dismissal after Como secured a 1-0 victory over Ascoli, reports, including one from Fabrizio Romano, indicate that the 36-year-old former midfielder is set to assume the coaching responsibilities at Como, replacing Longo.
Fabregas had previously been appointed as the coach of the youth team at Como last summer after concluding his illustrious playing career with the club.
This appointment marks Fabregas’s debut as a first-team coach, despite his past role with Como’s youth team. His experience with the club included playing 17 games in Serie B during the previous season.
Como currently holds the sixth position in the Serie B standings, tallying 21 points across 12 matches, placing them within the play-off zone and eight points adrift of league leaders Parma.
Throughout his playing career, Fabregas achieved significant success, securing the World Cup and the European Championship twice with the Spanish national team. He also claimed league titles in England and Spain during his tenures at Barcelona and Chelsea, respectively.
