The line player position has been becoming increasingly crucial in modern handball, as they are the go-to players when the attack needs refreshing or the defence manages to keep the powerful backs in check. At 25 years old, Fabregas, who joined Barça in 2018, has been developing at the highest level and became a dual-pronged threat – an efficient attacking player, but also a very good defender.
Fabregas has shone at the highest level for France, becoming Olympic champion for the first time in his career at Tokyo 2020, where he was also named the All-star line player. The recognition for his great games came only a few months after he was also named in the All-star Team at the IHF Men’s World Championship 2021, where France have finished fourth, missing out on a medal.
At club level, Fabregas had a flawless 2021, winning the EHF Champions League Men for the first time in his career with Barça, never dropping a game, while also doubling up on the Spanish domestic league title and the Spanish Cup. Fabregas scored 60 goals in the EHF Champions League Men for Barça, where he was also named in the All-star Team for the 2020/21 season.
