Published Add your comment

Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has paid glowing tribute to Arsene Wenger ahead of the Frenchman's 1000th game as Arsenal manager.

The Spain international sent a classy Instagram post, showing his appreciation for his former mentor with a picture of the pair celebrating a Gunners goal together with the message: "Congratulations boss. Hopefully many more to come. #wenger1000"

Fabregas credits Wenger for helping him get to where he is today, after moving to north London as a 16-year-old kid in 2003. He went on to make 303 Arsenal appearances, scoring 57 goals, having also established himself as club captain, before returning to Camp Nou in 2011.

Ahead of this weekend's landmark match, which sees the Gunners travel to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea in a top-of-the-table Premier League clash, the Barcelona ace was quoted by the Daily Mail.

"I just want to say congratulations. You made such a big impact on so many players' careers, especially on mine. I owe you everything."

Fabregas has made no secret of the fact that he still follows Arsenal's results closely since returning to Barcelona, and will remain a fan of his old club for the rest of his life.
