Cesc: I'm Staying To Win Trophies

Cesc: I'm Staying To Win Trophies

Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas seemingly committed himself to The Gunners yesterday, claiming he wasn't going to leave until he's brought silverware back to the club.

In an interview with ITV prior to the FA Cup 3rd clash against Leeds United at the Grove yesterday, Fabregas said,

'Why would I want to leave? It is fantastic here, it would be a dream to lift trophies for Arsenal'

'Afterwards you can always be attracted by something else, like a new objective, or new challenges because, for me, life is all about challenges. But my real challenge as captain of Arsenal is to bring this football club success.'

'This is the biggest dream I can have. I want to end these five years without a trophy and, hopefully, I can do it this season.'


Fabregas was subject to constant rumours of a move to Barcelona last summer, even admitting handing in a transfer request, but ever the professional, Fabregas took Wenger's decision not to grant him his wish on the chin and got on with the job at hand.

I've been thinking for a few weeks now, and even said so on the forums, that Cesc's demeanour has changed over the last month or two, he's celebrating his, and the team's goals with much more gusto, his comments and interviews have pointed in a direction that suggests his mind has been changed with regards to his immediate future.

Wenger has also laughed off the possibility of accepting a new bid from the Spanish giants.

'I have a good sense of humour, but I don't understand this one. I cannot see how people can say things like that without us knowing it. We have the contract of the player and we would inform you if we would sell the player. We sell nobody.'

Damn, does this mean he will leave IF we win the CC this year? :) I just hope Cesc stays, if by some mother******** miracle he sees out his entire career at Arsenal , he is going to be the greatest Arsenal player ever. I just know it.

Yeah Cesc's behaviour on the pitch especially with goal celebrations and even reactions to stupid mistakes (like Denilson's yesterday) has looked like he does care about the club. It's quite natural as he's been working with the Arsenal players, spending much less time with the C*ntalans on international duty. Also with us doing okay in all competitions, a tiny part of me hopes and thinks he's changed his mind a little bit.

I thought the same thing Sajit, but decided not to be so cynical :)

Sajit, its quite clear that Cesc will leave when Wenger wants him to leave. That was made quite clear last summer too and nothing appears to have changed AW's mind since then.

If Barcelona can afford him I still think he’ll go at the end of the season otherwise it might be that he realises they can’t afford him and has decided to commit himself to Arsenal until they can (until it is contractually convenient to both parties).
