A number of photographs showing torched Fabregas shirts have emerged on social media following the Spain international’s transfer to London rivals Chelsea last week.
I have explained it well. I’ve always been very loyal and grateful to Arsenal
But Fabregas, who spent eight years at the north London club before returning to Barcelona in 2011, insists he is paying no attention to the small portion of fans “who want to cause trouble”.
“I’m mature enough for that not to hurt,” Fabregas said.
“I have explained it well. I’ve always been very loyal and grateful to Arsenal.
