Cesc Fabregas Telling It Like It Is @ Arsenal

Cesc Fabregas

Cesc Fabregas has risked the wrath of Arsenal management and boss Arsene Wenger with a tough assessment of Arsenal’s six-year trophy drought.

Fabregas questions his manager’s intentions and called on the club’s new owners to choose between nurturing talent or winning silverware.

Fabregas insists he will never leave for another English team, but left the door open for a return to his native Barcelona if Arsenal fail to convince him they are going in the right direction.

Fabregas said: ‘If you went to Spain and said to Pep Guardiola (the Barca manager), Jose Mourinho (Real Madrid) or Unai Emery (Valencia) they would have three years without a trophy, it would be obvious they would not continue.

‘But here it is different, the manager is intelligent and the club value different things: that the team is always in the Champions League, that we compete until the end, that we have young players, economic stability.

‘But I imagine there will be a moment when you have to decide: do you win things or not?’

Fabregas joined Arsenal in 2003 – just as Wenger’s ‘Invincibles’ were embarking on an unbeaten Barclays Premier League campaign. He won the FA Cup in 2005 and reached the Champions League final a year later but the 2-1 defeat by Barcelona in Paris was the first of many disappointments.

Birmingham v Arsenal

Robin van Persie is back

Birmingham v Arsenal

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger confirmed Cesc Fabregas, rested Robin van Persie, and Alex Song will be back for tomorrow’s match against Birmingham.

We get back Song, Fabregas – who was suspended – and Van Persie. They will be back in the squad. “We lose Diaby for a calf strain, [he will miss] three weeks approximately.

The squad will be approximately the squad that has gone to Wigan.

Birmingham boss Alex McLeish believes big teams don’t like to play his team away from home.

“Nobody likes coming here. People keep saying that – and long may it continue. We have earned that reputation and want to preserve it. We know Arsenal are capable of turning anybody over on their day, but if they feel a bit nervy, that could just give us a bit extra. We need to make sure that Arsenal are another big club who go home knowing they have been in a game.
