With a remarkable journey spanning over two decades, Fabregas amassed an impressive collection of trophies, clinching at least 15 titles, including the FIFA World Cup and the UEFA European Championship twice.
Among his notable teammates was Victor Moses, with whom he shared a memorable stint at Chelsea.
The duo played pivotal roles in securing the English Premier League title in 2017 and the subsequent FA Cup victory the following year.
In light of their shared experiences, Moses took to Twitter to express his sentiments towards Fabregas, referring to him as a “true legend” of the game and extending his well-wishes for a fulfilling retirement.
Moses’ post reads, “A pleasure to play with you, brother, @cesc4official. You’re a true legend of the game. I wish you the happiest retirement.”
It is worth noting that Moses, currently representing Spartak Moscow in Russia, retired from international football in 2018, despite his ongoing involvement in club competitions.
During his time as part of the Super Eagles, the 32-year-old winger made 38 appearances and remarkably netted 12 goals.
Notably, Moses played a pivotal role in Nigeria’s triumphant campaign during the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, where they emerged victorious for the third time.
