Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has openly admitted that he has not been extremely comfortable following is switch to the Spanish giant from Arsenal in the summer. Cesc Fabregas moved to Barcelona in a £ 35 million deal from Arsenal. This meant that he has once again arrived at the club where he started his career. He is expected to be the replacement for Xavi Hernandez once the 32-year-old retires from football. Fabregas had a sensational start to his Barcelona career after lifting two major trophies in the first few months after his arrival.
However, the second half of the season has been a major struggle for the 25-year-old, who has been criticised by many for disrupting the rhythm Barcelona have had in the last four seasons under Guardiola. It was no coincidence that Barcelona failed to retain the la Liga title and also the Champions League title due to the poor form shown by Fabregas in the final few months of the campaign. However, he has proved that he has not lost his quality by scoring the equaliser in the 1-1 draw with Italy in the opening game of the Euro 2012 for Spain. Vicente del Bosque demonstrated his confidence in the Spaniard by starting him ahead of regular striker Fernando Torres.
“It’s one of the things you have to adapt to. It’s not easy, it’s been tough. It has been a radical change in my life and like it or not it is hard to adapt. I went from playing with complete freedom of movement to Barcelona where the game is more positional. It was a challenge and I went through a period where I was very worried about it,” said Fabregas. He is once again expected to play a key role in the final group match of the Euro 2012 against Croatia.
