Fabregas Wants A Rest

Fabregas Wants A Rest

Cesc Fabregas is fully aware of the dangers of burning out and is keen to avoid it by getting a well earned rest this summer.

Since coming into the side after the departure of Patrick Vieira, Cesc has been playing constantly, and at the highest of levels too.

Arsene Wenger himself has toyed with the idea of sidelining Fabregas only to have his plans scuppered by injuries in other area's.

Speaking with Arsenal.com Cesc said, 'I am looking forward to this summer, although the thing is that when we finish at Arsenal, we have international games in June and that breaks up my plans a little bit. Sometimes I do think I need one summer just to rest. I remember when I was 16 turning 17, I had seven weeks rest and I came back in pre-season refreshed and ready to go.'

'That is what made the difference because I was a reserve player and I came into the first team in this period and because I had rested I had a lot of energy and power. You do need that rest when you are so young and you start playing so many games under a lot of pressure, especially in midfield where you have to run a lot and make a lot of tackles.'

'Of course I like to play football and I will never say 'no' when I am asked to play because I love it so much.'

'If I said 'no' I would feel really bad in myself - but after six or seven years of this you can get injuries so you have to be professional and take care of yourself.'

I know that Henry is a lot older but he is proof that constant football for years and years on end will catch up with you. This is why need to give our key players time to rest. I don't think that we can afford to rest Cesc on Saturday but maybe in some home matches to keep him fresh.

Well, I hope Arsene rests him for a few games. A good chance to play two from Denilson, Diaby and Gilberto. But it IS a little worrying that cesc will play so much football in june. We all saw what an inadequate pre-season did to Henry this season.

They all need a break from football. Remember they still have to play the qualifying rounds for CL which meant they can take a break for about 4-5 weeks.
