Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has revealed that he still loves his former club Arsenal, from where he rose to prominence. Cesc Fabregas had joined Arsenal from the La Masia academy at the age of 16. He was a fantastic player at the club and became one of the best midfielder in Premier league at that time. 

For bigger glory he left the club in 2010 and joined FC Barcelona where he was not a very big success. He remained out of favour at Nou Camp for most of the times and left them last summer to join Arsenal’s city rivals Chelsea.

He was criticised heavily by the Gooners and was even booed when he visited the Emirates with Chelsea.

Irrespective of all the banters and criticsm the Spaniard recently spoke about how he still loves Arsenal.

He was quoted: ‘Whatever it is, it is. The love I have for that club will never change whatever happens and what is the most important is what I have with me from my time there.

‘The rest doesn’t matter, I have great memories, love and respect for the club. You will never hear anything bad from me about them.’

Chelsea face Arsenal on Sunday 2nd August for the Community shiled. Arsenal are in tremendous form this season as they won all their pre-season games. Chelsea on ther hand lost to New York Red Bulls and drew against PSG and Barcelona during the regulation time.

Regarding the game the midfielder opined: ‘It’s not the most important game but we want to win and compete. It is a big game, a London derby at Wembley in front of all the fans. It’s a nice competition to play in and even if it is a pre-season game you still want to win.

‘We are not worried that they might be fresher than us. They started pre season 10 days before us but we are competitors, we will want to win and will probably be a great game.’
