Wenger confirms he'd welcome Fabregas back

Published Add your comment

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger would love to have Cesc Fabregas back at the Emirates Stadium.

Fabregas, who currently plays for Barcelona, told the Daily Mail that he would like the opportunity to return to Arsenal once his playing career ends - possibly as a coach.

And Wenger said he would be happy to welcome the Spaniard back to Arsenal.

"I am very happy that a player of his intelligence, technical ability and knowledge of the game would come back one day," Wenger told the BBC.

Arsenal have started the season in excellent form, and currently sit two points clear of Chelsea and Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table.

They haven't won a trophy since 2005 and the Premier League title since 2004 - but Fabregas believes they have the "strength of character" to win it this season.

And Wenger hopes Fabregas is proved correct.

"I hope he is right on the two sides," said Wenger. "That he'll come back shows he has kept fond memories of this club."

Fabregas left Arsenal for Barca in a £35m deal in the summer of 2011, but has been linked with a return to England.

Arsenal face manager-less Crystal Palace in the early kick-off on Saturday afternoon, with the opportunity to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table.

Mathieu Flamini, who missed the defeat to Borussia Dortmund, is expected to return to face Palace.
