Fabregas 'so happy' with Gunners

Published Add your comment

Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas has reiterated his commitment to the Gunners, saying: "I don't want to fail here."

Outgoing Barcelona president Joan Laporta has hinted a deal is already in place to sign Fabregas next summer.

But the 22-year-old told the Daily Mail: "I am so happy here and I want to continue to be part of what is happening here. Definitely."

He added: "If not I would have left when I had the opportunity, three years ago, two years ago or last year.

"I believe in this team and I feel we can achieve things. The boss believes in us more than anyone, and I feel I am part of it. He makes me see that as well. And I don't want to fail here."

Fabregas likened his situation to that of Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard, who appeared on the verge of joining Chelsea four years ago but opted to remain at Anfield.

"I think you have to be grateful to those who have helped you," the Spain midfielder continued.

"When Steven Gerrard had the opportunity to go somewhere else he chose to stay with the club of his life, and I don't think he will ever regret that.

"He made a decision to stay and he has to believe that it was the right one."
