Fabregas Eyeing Henry's Role
Arsenal's young midfield maestro Cesc Fabregas has once again declared his interest in taking over the departed Theirry Henry's role as club captain.
Fabregas has been linked with a move away from Arsenal this summer, with AC Milan, real Madrid and former club Barcelona all reported to have shown an interest in him.
But the 19-year-old Spanish international has committed his future to Arsenal, although he did admit that he would like to return to Barcelona later in his career.
In an interview with Arsenal.com Fabregas was asked if he would like to captain Arsenal to which he replied: 'Of course.
Everybody wants this kind of responsibility and 100 per cent me as well.
It something that I have liked ever since I have been young and it would be no problem for me to be captain of this club.'
However, despite the youngsters interest it is unlikely he will be given such responsibility at such a young age.
However, with Gilberto likely to be given the armband, we could see Cesc being made captain in 2 or 3 years time, when Bert is likely to be shown the door by Arsene Wenger.
