QOTD: Cesc Fabregas, Arsenal FC
Er, Cesc? A word, please? Image: Getty Images/Zimbio.
“Incredible that people try and twist everything to make headlines. Arsene Wenger has had a huge impact on me and my career. Great man.”
This is Cesc Fabregas’ Twitter response to press reports on his recent interview with Spanish weekly, Don Balon, in which he supposedly claimed that Arsenal ‘lack a winning mentality’ and that boss Arsene Wenger would have lost his job if he was at a Spanish club and had failed to win trophies.
The player, who has been the subject of incessant speculation about his future, is presumably peeved that the media has chosen to focus on these comments, which, when read out of context, do rather imply he is looking towards a move.
Don’t fret, Cescy. We’ve seen it all before and will love you forever, regardless of your geographic location. And at least you’ve had the opportunity to demonstrate to your fellow players what Twitter is supposed to be used for.
