Fabregas For Vice-Captain?
As I participated in my daily stumble around the websites, forums, blogs and other such media outlets, I happened across an article or two that suggests that Arsene Wenger will reward Cesc Fabregas's 'loyalty' by handing him the honour of being of vice captain.
Cesc Fabregas is a fantastic footballer, of that there is no doubt. Some argue he may go on to become the best central midfielder in the world, and if that were to happen, I wouldn't be surprised in the least. However, despite his obvious talent, there is a petulant side to this young Spaniard, a side that seems to be rearing it's head with more regularity that a diarrhetic camel.
Some Gooners pass this off as the will to win, but if I'm being honest, it's just a case of believing his own hype and having an ego the size of Great Yarmouth.
Maybe (if the rumour is true) the vice captaincy will sooth the savage beasts temper and turn him into a leader of men, or maybe it will make the lad even more big headed, who knows? But one things is for sure, if Wenger is giving Cesc this position within the club in attempt to persuade Cesc to commit to the club for the even longer term than he already is, then it's a big mistake. Just look at Thierry Henry.
