After a summer of discontent and quite literally countless quotes and sound-bytes from Barca players, it appears the Arsenal PR machine is in full swing as Cesc returns to training to a chorus of praise and admiration from his team-mates.
Whilst the monotonous tones of Xavi, Puyol, Iniesta, and Messi were ringing in our ears, Arsenal and it's staff kept a dignified silence as we fought to keep our prized asset, and now as it seems that battle has been won our players have been out in force heaping praise on the Spanish midfielder letting him know just how much he is needed in North London.
The latest players letting Cesc know how much he is loved are Theo and The Verminator.
Thomas wasn't shy with the plaudits, "He is just a fantastic player and that is why he is important for us. He has played many great games and scored a lot of goals.'
"He`s really important and we hope he stays. He`s a leader of the team, he is the skipper and the boss gave him the armband because he is important."
"The way he plays, not just with his feet but also the work he puts in, is hard for anybody to match. He is a complete player."
Walcott too sang the praises of his captain, 'Cesc's a big player for Arsenal so I'm looking forward to playing with him next season,'
'He's one of those players who spots a ball no one else would. I've been texting him. I sent my congratulations for the World Cup and said what a great pass he made for the winner.
'After that he just needed a good mental break from it all. I'm looking forward to seeing him back. He's a fantastic player for us and our captain. After Spain's victory, it's a nice bonus to have a World Cup winner by your side.'
