AS Monaco. Cesc Fabregas will return to competition after seven months of absence, but with the reserve
“We are waiting for him to be able to play a match on a natural lawn and it will be at the Stade Louis-II, with the reserved team, normally”, explained the coach about Cesc Fabregas, who has not played in competition for seven months. It was September 16, when he entered the Europa League at halftime against Sturm Graz (1-0).
Since the start of the season, the Spaniard, world champion in 2010 and double European champion in 2008 and 2012, has only played 117 minutes with Monaco, including only 36 minutes in Ligue 1.
A friendly match in February, then return to the infirmary
After a long rehabilitation following a strain on the hamstring muscles of a thigh, he replayed in a friendly on February 23 against the reserve team of English Premier League club Brentford (2-1), at the performance center of La Turbia. He was on the pitch for 76 minutes.
A week later, he was back in the infirmary again with a sprained ankle.

Saturday (at 4 p.m.), the reserve team of Monaco, currently 14th in National 2 and which is fighting against relegation, will receive Aubagne, 6th in the standings, at the Stade Louis-II. This will be an opportunity for Fabregas – whose contract with Monaco will expire at the end of June – to find playing time, seven months later.
