Fabregas: 'I Needed This!'
Cesc Fabregas must have woken up this morning and thought: 'did last night really happen? Or was it an amazing dream?'
That question would have been answered when he tried to get up after running 8 miles last night.
Fabregas' best performance of his career, along with the best performance you're ever likely to see from a team saw Arsenal domainte AC Milan and grab a well deserved 2-0 win.
Not only was it the best performance of his career, but scoring THAT goal was one of the best moments of his career, according to Fabregas.
'It was one of the best moments of my career and I went straight to the boss because without him I would never have had the chance to play in a game like this,' he told Arsenal.com
The Spanish midfielder admitted that he has not been at his best since he suffered an injury before Christmas, but says that he is back to his best now: 'Maybe I have not been at my best since my injury, but now I feel great once again.
'This performance has been very important for my confidence. After I had started the season so well and then had an injury, I was not playing the way I used to and I was a bit upset. I needed a performance like this.
'When you look back on your career, these are the nights you are going to remember.
'We have to be very proud of what we have done. We went over to our fans, and you could also see some of the Milan fans clapping. You could see they like this kind of football and that we played well.
'The Milan players all said: 'well done, we hope you win it now'. In Italy, they have a lot of respect.'
