Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas will forever be grateful to Arsene Wenger and Arsenal.
The 29-year-old made over 300 appearances for Arsenal, who travel to Stamford Bridge on Saturday seeking to end Chelsea’s 10-match winning run at home.
In an interview on YouTube Cesc Fabregas said: “There’s something that will never change. There’s many things said about me, about Arsenal.
“I don’t really care what people think about me any more. It’s just about what I feel towards them. Arsenal will always be the team that believed in me the most. I was a young kid, 16 years old, playing for Barcelona.
“Arsene Wenger, especially, and Arsenal Football Club, gave me everything.
“Without them I would not be a World Cup winner, a European Championship winner. And I would not have experienced all of this that I’m doing in my life. I will always forever be grateful.”
