Former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas has insisted he won’t try and persuade current Gunners skipper Robin van Persie to join him at Spanish champions Barcelona.
Former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas has insisted he won’t try and persuade current Gunners skipper Robin van Persie to join him at Barcelona.
The 24-year-old spent eight seasons at the Emirates making 303 appearances for the club before eventually being granted his wish to return to boyhood club Barcelona last summer.
Speculation has surrounded Robin van Persie’s future with the dutchman entering the final year of his contract in June but Fabregas is quoted on Sky Sports News as saying that although he still speaks to his former team mate, it’s not to try and sway his decision on where his future lies:
“I talk to him but not about Barca,”
“He is an Arsenal player and he knows what is best for him. I only wish the best of luck for him before he makes whatever decision he will make.”
In a world where Arsenal fans are used to Barca players openly ‘tapping up’ our stars, its nice to see there is now someone at the Nou Camp who has an ounce of respect.
