Cesc Fabregas has furiously denied bad-mouthing the Arsenal and insisting he didn’t leave, as claimed in an interview, because the Gunners couldn’t win silverware in the next few years.
Cesc-gate erupted yesterday with a supposed interview in which the Barcelona midfielder set out his reasons for quitting the Emirates, chief amongst them was the percieved inability for Arsene Wenger to steer the club to some trophies any time soon.
But using his Twitter acount Cesc hit back. He tweeted: “I’d never speak 1 bad word about AFC, here there’s once more proof that so many people put in newspapers what they want and it’s not professional. I want Arsenal to be successful as much as every single fan. That’s not why I left, it was never on my mind. AFC made me who I am today.
“And nobody will ever change that. I never gave any interview away since my press conference at my presentation, and there I just said… The truth and what came out of my heart. Great words this great football club cause that’s just what they deserve: success and trophies.”
Nice one, Cesc – always have a place in Arsenal hearts, I reckon…
