Enzo Fernandez; This Chelsea legend always supported me and I learned a lot from him. A recent interview states.
Enzo Fernandez is far from one of these people who do not express gratitude to whoever helped them and who made them see the light in whatever it is they do and so he has extended his warm feelings and thoughts to a Chelsea ex player who he said had helped him a lot and also he has learned a lot from.
The Chelsea website are running a series of interviews with him this week, the first one being on how he started his life in football in Argentina.
Enzo speaks about the season he spent on loan at Defensa y Justicia prior to his real breakthrough at River Plate. At this club, he came under the coaching wing of former Chelsea striker Hernan Crespo who won the Premier League during his time at Stamford Bridge.
“It was right after the pandemic came to an end,” Enzo remembered.
“That was a unique experience. He [Crespo] is a very special person. He’s always tried to support me, and I learnt a lot from him and his technical staff. He was my coach for four to five months until Sebastian Beccacece arrived, with whom we became champions of La Recopa [a Super Cup-style tournament].
“He was a very important person, a great coach, although a bit crazy, as I used to tell him. But I learnt a lot from both of them, and I feel grateful for everything they’ve given me when I was in Defensa y Justicia.”
