I feel sorry for Cesc Fabregas. I really do. He must have had some serious ‘Boy Who Cried Wolf’ moments as a child because no matter how many times he commits himself to Arsenal people continue to doubt him. It’s really rather ridiculous.
I can’t be bothered dissecting and explaining the latest collection of Cesc Fabregas comments because (a) it’s bloody boring and (b) someone’s already done it for me. But what I will speak about is the official response made by our captain. Check this out:
“I’m not sure how many times I need to talk directly about my commitment to Arsenal as I continue to say the same thing over and over again, but it appears that every time I have spoken to the Spanish media recently, my words have bounced back to England, leaving question marks about my future. So, for anyone who is unclear or may have misunderstood what my position is, let me make myself absolutely crystal clear. I am wholeheartedly committed to Arsenal and my future lies with this great Club.”
“It is a fact that we have not won a trophy for four years and yes, I am angry about that, but that anger stems from the deep deep desire I have to win things with Arsenal. I care about this Club and believe in this team. I am proud to captain this team and proud to wear the shirt. It really upsets me when people express my thoughts otherwise. The spirit in this squad is fantastic and we have the ability and mentality to compete on all fronts for silverware. Make no mistake, we are focussed and determined to show that we are capable of achieving great things together.”
It’s case closed as far as I’m concerned. Cesc doesn’t want to go anywhere, he’s not going anywhere and he wants to win things with Arsenal. As an astute, intelligent young man he can see the obvious potential that this squad has and as the captain of said squad, the opportunity he has to lead them to something great.
It goes without saying that Cesc Fabregas is a bloody legend. He consistently pledges his future to club and continually makes statements every time his commitment is called into question. And what’s more, quite obviously, he actually means it.
Just a piece of advice to all you readers out there to finish this topic off. When you see stories on various websites or newspapers that say “Cesc hints at Barca move” (or “Adebayor linked with Milan” for that matter) just make sure you check out the information properly before you start making judgments. So often the quotes taken from players in these stories are manipulated so far out of context from the actual interview structure in a deliberate attempt to shock and cause controversy. Be aware of that and most important of all, don’t panic and start slating players on blogs before you actually know the truth.
In other news this Friday AC Milan general manager Adriano Galliani has said that the club will only try and sign Emmanuel Adebayor if they can’t get Wolfsburg’s Edin Dzeko while comments from the Felipe Melo camp suggest that he is well-settled at Fiorentina. I’m sure things will heat up in both departments once the Brazilian national team returns from South Africa and they all get chatting to their agents. Oh, and Michael Jackson died. You might have heard.
That is that I’m afraid. Enjoy the last day of the week and I’ll be back tomorrow with some linky goodness.
