Cesc Fabregas "invents" new way to pass a football

On his day, few have better ability to pull off an unthinkable pass like Cesc Fabregas.

In recent years, Fabregas has shown the ability to spread the ball about from deep like a quarterback and in his prime, Fabregas played in so many teammates with perfectly weighted assists from a more advanced position.


It's hard to believe that Fabregas is still only 31 and he still has plenty of tricks in his locker, as evidenced during Monaco's recent victory over Lyon.

Fabregas proudly claims to have invented a new way to pass the ball during his ninth appearance for his new club, after leaving Chelsea last month.

It might take a few watches to figures out what Fabregas has done here but he essentially collected the ball and laid it off to a teammate with a beautiful flick, all in one movement.


Fabregas maintains that the pass was fully intentional, responding with a simple "of course I did" when asked if he meant it.


Sunday's win saw Monaco move five points clear of the relegation zone after a dire first half of the Ligue 1 season, with the club dismissing two managers already.

After being sacked in October and replaced by Thierry Henry, Leonardo Jardim has returned to the dugout and seems to have stopped the rot, with three wins and one draw from Monaco's last four games.
