Cesc Fàbregas has denied giving an interview in which he allegedly questioned Arsenal’s title-winning credentials.

The Barcelona midfielder, who re-joined his boyhood club this summer after eight years in north London, was quoted as saying that he found it “hard to see” former club winning major titles “in the near future”.

However, the 24-year-old reacted angrily to the reports and used his Twitter account to reassure Arsenal supporters that he wants the club to be successful like “every single fan”.

He posted on Twitter: “Id never speak 1 bad word abt AFC, here there’s once more prove that so many people put in newspaper wtv they want and its not professional.”

“I want Arsenal to be successful as much as every single fan. Thats not why i left, it was never in 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 abt this great football club cause that just what they deserve: success and trophies.

“People can h8 me 4 leaving or remember that i gave my all for the club. But me talking 1 bad word or saying smthng against AFC will not seen.”
