Arsenal’s old Captain Fab, Cesc Fabregas, may be playing in Monaco right now, but although he is a bit of a legend at Arsenal after becoming our youngest captain ever, he is actually in line for a Winners Medal if Chelsea beat the Gunners tonight after playing five times in the early stages of the Europa League.
But he spent many more of his most formative years at Arsenal under Wenger, so where will his loyalties lie this evening? ‘Obviously I was with Chelsea very recently,’ he said on ChelseaFC’s website. ‘Three months ago I was playing with all these players, team-mates. We won a lot together, I had great times with the fans, with the club, so that’s definitely a big thing.
‘Arsenal – what can I say? I spent probably the best years of my life there. The connection I had with the fans is something you don’t see very, very often.
‘Even though we didn’t win as much with Chelsea, we competed very well, every year we made the Champions League, competing even in finals.
‘If you ask me to choose, I think it would be impossible for me to choose. But, as I said, I have great, great memories with both teams.’
‘I captained the team, I have a few assists here and there. To be honest, I don’t really mind about the fact if I get a medal or not, but definitely you do feel a part of it,’
He should probably feel more a “part of it” than any other ex-player right now, so despite what he says, do you think he will be secretly cheering Arsenal to win tonight?
