Fabregas Aiming For Quick Return

Fabregas Aiming For Quick Return

Cesc Fabregas is aiming for a speedy recovery after jogging for the first time since injuring his knee against Liverpool in December.

The Arsenal captain was injured after he went in for a 50/50 ball with Xabi Alonso (oh the irony) and easily came off the worst.

However the Spanish midfield maestro is already thinking about making his comeback after putting some weight on the knee and doing a spot of jogging.

In his matchday programmw Cesc said, 'My leg is getting stronger and the doctors tell me that the ligament has healed,'

'I will take it step by step, but hopefully I can come back earlier than first expected. However, let's wait and see.'

'Now it is about building up the muscle and on Thursday I had a very little jog for the first time, so it is good news and I am happy because I can see a big improvement.'

'I will be coming back to England in two weeks' time and, after being assessed by the physios, we will set a target date for my return.'

I'm not one to want a player to rush back too soon, but I just wonder if our result since his injury would have been any better had he been in the team?

God, we need him back asap. Let's just hope the signing of Arshavin will be completed to give us a boost until the legend that is Cesc returns.

our results WOULD have been better had cesc not been out injured. we needed a midfield general to take control of the middle. nasri fits the position, but then we lose his effectiveness in the wide areas. diaby and denilson not quite up to cesc's lofty standards.

My Arshavin poll at one point this week was 80/20 in favor of yes, and now there is just barely a majority in the yes column. Shocking!

Cesc was out for form before his injury, and was just getting back to his good old self. Its a bit risky to expect him to come right back and solve all our creative issues. I dont think that will happen.

I really hope we do sign Arshavin. I don't see him as a saviour...more of an indication of ambition. Can you imagine us not signing anyone then having to endure weeks of specualtion in the summer ? Who's leaving ? , who's coming in ?.....I think with Arshavin in the fold , a few of our more talented players will stay. Without him ( or any other major signing) I think it will be open season at the Emirates when certain clubs come sniffing round. If we don't win anything (again) , Cesc,Theo,RVP just to name a few, will be targets. They need to believe that they are in a team that is capable of winning the Prem and the CL. They need to look around and think " yes you're world class , so are you , so are you" etc etc.If we don't win anything this season , and AW does not strengthen the squad radically , I can see our top players leaving. Period ! ...
