Fabregas Online video Ranking: 4 / five
The Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has said that he is not happy with his bit part role at the club this season, but has said that he will not be leaving the club under any circumstances. Cesc Fabregas signed from Barcelona for £ 35 million last season and he was a first-team regular under Guardiola. Even though Fabregas was not as successful as he would have hoped in his first season at the club, the former Arsenal midfielder would have been looking to settle at the club this season. However, the new manager Tito Vilanova has largely used to him as a substitute in the first few matches of the campaign.
This has been causing a lot of unrest within the Fabregas camp after the midfielder recently claimed that he was not happy with his role as a substitute within the club. Barcelona have one of the strongest midfield amongst any club in the world. Hence, it is difficult for any player to replace the likes of Iniesta and Xavi on a regular basis. Fabregas acknowledges this, but has said that he is not happy with his role at the moment. Despite this, the 25-year-old has confirmed that he will not be leaving the club at any stage.
“There’s no such thing as a great substitute in the world of football – I couldn’t tell you what makes a great substitute. I always wish my team-mates well and put a happy face on. If I have to take my unhappy face home then so be it, but I would never let my team-mates or manager see it. I’ve always said that I play for the best team in the world, but I came here to compete, to learn and enjoy, not to sit wracking my brains,” said Cesc Fabregas in a recent interview.
