Fabregas lands first managerial job with Italian side Como

Former Spain midfielder Cesc Fabregas will take temporary charge of Italian Serie B side Como, the club confirmed on Monday.

Fabregas will replace Moreno Longo as manager, after the Italian won just 16 of his 45 games in charge.

The job will mark the 36-year-old's senior managerial debut. The former Arsenal, Barcelona and Chelsea midfielder retired from his playing career in July.
