Fabregas: "Arsenal is in my heart, and always will be"

Jasper Juinen

Cesc Fabregas has talked about his love for the club that developed him as a player.

To mark the 10th anniversary of his professional debut, Cesc Fabregas has done a two-part interview with Sid Lowe. The first part of the interview was published in the Guardian today and deals with his time at Arsenal. There are several interesting things that Fabregas discusses in the interview, which will be dealt with at length later. One thing that automatically jumps out, though, is his respect for Arsenal and for Arsene Wenger:

Arsenal are a fascinating club. They give you everything. It's a family, it really is. The fans support you unconditionally, too. I couldn't have gone to a better place.
Arsenal is in my heart and always will be. I don't know if I'll have the opportunity to go back and play there one day, or maybe after football. It's a club that is always going to be there and will always open its doors to me. The club's like a family so even if it wasn't as a coach, I'm sure they'd give me the chance to play a role

That's nothing new from what Fabregas has said in the past, but it's always nice to hear players reaffirm how much the club means to them. The door has been left open for others to return in the past, such as Sol Campbell and Mathieu Flamini, and, despite the signing of Mesut Özil, the door is probably still open for Fabregas, were he to want to return. He is, after all, one of Arsene Wenger's favourite, if not favourite, players, and is one of the best midfielders in the world.

AND HE WILL ALWAYS LOVE US
