Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has paid a glowing tribute to Arsene Wenger, stating that he owes "nearly everything" to the Arsenal manager, reports

The Spain international spent his formative years under the tutelage of the French tactician, after leaving Camp Nou to move to north London at the age of 16.

Fabregas labelled the Gunners boss the "most important person" in his career to date, and believes that he is responsible for his impressive development that earned a return to Barcelona in the summer of 2011.

"I prefer not to talk too much about Arsenal because they are doing very well now," he told Omnisport. "All I can say are amazing words for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger.

"The most important figure to me was Arsene Wenger. I have to be grateful all my life to him and that's it.

"For me he is the most important person, he knows everything about me and that's the person that I owe nearly everything."

The 26-year-old has been keeping a close eye on Arsenal's Premier League title charge this season, and also took time to defend their £42.5million club record signing Mesut Ozil, who has come into criticism in recent weeks following a series of under-par performances.

"They are doing very well and I am very happy for them," added the Barcelona star. "I just wish them the very best.

"He [Ozil] is a good player. He's a very good assisting player, so he is one of the reasons [that Arsenal are challenging]."

After eight years in north London, Fabregas will forever be indebted to Arsenal and Wenger, and will continue to support them from Barcelona, where he is enjoying the latest stage of his career.
