Cesc Fabregas has insisted that no matter where he plays, Arsenal will always be a special part of his life.

The Spanish international’s move to London rivals angered many of the Gunners faithful and he was subjected to boos and jeers when the Blues visited the Emirates Stadium last April.

However, Fabregas applauded the Arsenal crowd in that very match after being substituted to which the fans reciprocated in a positive manner.

As the Guardian reported, the Chelsea midfielder admitted: ”The love I have for that club will never change whatever happens and what is most important are the memories I have with me from them.”

”The rest doesn’t matter. I have great memories, love and respect for the club. You will never hear anything bad from me about them.”

The 28-year-old spent eight seasons at Arsenal when manager Arsene Wenger signed him from Barcelona when he was just 16. Eventually his association with the club ended with Fabregas going back to his hometown in 2011.

But things didn’t go according to plan as Fabregas failed to cement a starting spot with the likes of Xavi and Iniesta preferred ahead of him under Pep Guardiola, Tito Vilanova or Tata Martino.

Return to England

Predominantly used as a winger or a false 9, Fabregas decided to end his torrid spell at Barcelona with a return to the Premier League in 2014.

Arsenal had the first option to buy him, but manager Arsene Wenger declined the opportunity. Hence Chelsea took advantage with Jose Mourinho offering him a more central role in midfield which yielded the benefits shown in the video below:

Fabregas achieved his dream of the Premier League title with Chelsea and is all geared up for the challenge to retain the trophy this season.

The Spanish ace made 34 league appearances for Chelsea in 2014-15, scoring three goals alongside 18 assists with a pass success rate of 85.2%.
