Cesc Fabregas has taken to social media to praise efforts of former Arsenal vice-chairman David Dein.
David Dein took over the position at Arsenal in 1983 and oversaw some very prosperous times for the club, including the appointment of Arsene Wenger and the famed ‘Invincibles’ campaign.
Dein left his role at Arsenal in 2007 to the dismay of many senior figures at Arsenal, including Arsenal Wenger who allegedly offered to step down as manager as a show of solidarity to his longtime friend and colleague.
Arsenal never quite managed to replicate the same success after Dein left, failing to win a single trophy in the seven years immediately after his departure. Dein also had a hand in bringing in many of Arsenal’s former greats during his reign, one of whom was Fabregas.
Fabregas took to Instagram after the meal dinner with David Dein to praise him and state that things were never the same without him in north London.
