Cesc ‘can’t see Arsenal winning trophies in the near future’
Cesc FÃ bregas fears that his former club's trophy drought will continue in his absence
Cesc FÃ bregas admits he cannot see Arsenal winning major trophies in the near future.
The former Arsenal captain finally sealed a move back to his boyhood club Barcelona this summer – and the 24-year-old says a burning desire to win titles was the main reason for his transfer.
“I needed a change in my life, that’s the truth,” FÃ bregas told Sport magazine. “We weren’t winning any titles and it was very frustrating for me. I didn’t feel like I was developing anymore as I should do.
“I want to be in a club that is able to win the big titles year after year and I don’t see that kind of future for Arsenal.”
FÃ bregas, who has already collected Uefa Super Cup and Supercopa de EspaÃ±a winners’ medals since moving to the Camp Nou, also fears that Arsenal’s lengthy trophy drought is far from over.
“I still have many feelings for Arsenal but I fear that they won’t be able to push the other big clubs in England away,” he said.
“If you look at the team this season I can’t see them finishing in front of teams like Manchester United or City, or Chelsea. There’s just too big a difference between the squads.”
FÃ bregas later took to his Twitter account to deny having given the interview.
