Fabregas Doesn't Want Nose Job

Fabregas Doesn't Want Nose Job

Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas is hoping to avoid surgery on his hooter after breaking it on international duty.

The Spaniards schnozz was broken as he challenged an opponent for the ball, but despite this Fabregas hopes to face Everton tomorrow.

'There is a fracture but it has not come away from the main partition in the nose,' he told EFE.

'After the game it was pretty swollen but I hope this will not prevent me from playing.

'We will have to see if it continues being okay and that I don't need an operation.

'I don't even know how it happened really, I started going for goal and I do not know if it was a punch or a knee from a Belgian defender but it was a heavy blow.'

Having broken my own beak on five seperate occassions I'd hazzard a guess he will be fine, just snap that bad boy back into place and be gone with you.

Five times? Jeez, does your missus swing out in her sleep? Mind you I've busted my jaw about seven times now and after a while you do get a bit blasé about it? Cesc is a tough cookie, he'll be fine. Also nice to see that, once again, he was swift to distance himself from comments attributed to him during the international break (if you'll pardon the expression).

Yeah, once via someone's fist, twice playing football, once playing basketball and once via a house brick that also cracked my skull and broke my jaw. That one stung a little!!lol. Still if Andy Linnigan can score an FA Cup final winner with a broken nose Cesc will be more than fine.

On breaking your nose, it depends on how bad the break is (or at what angle). I've done mine serveral times playing rugby. Once had it reset at hospital, but every other time it's sorted itself. It doesn't sound like a bad one, so (providing his breathing is ok) he should be fit to play!

Was gonna say Rocky, living up to your name there... i'd hazard a guess he'll want it back in its natural state, he has had his chest hair laser removed after all

Lol - It was new years eve and my bud had a house party, shortly after midnight this random stranger came into his house causing trouble so me and a friend ejected him. Two minutes later there was a knock at the door mny bud opened and this guy smashed a bottle over his head. So I chased him down the street and as I rounded the corner he was waiting bricking hand and knocked me and my face out in one fell swoop. lol. 6 hours in casualty on New Years day with my nose over my left eye was no fun!!
