Wenger fully focused – Fabregas

The north London side were booed off the pitch after losing to

Newcastle last weekend, but Fabregas reckons Wenger remains

committed to the club and intent on making his young team

successful again. “Yes, yes, of this I’m sure,” the 23-year-old

said in The Sun. “I can guarantee you that, 100%. “I have been here

for seven years, I’m now in my eighth year so I know him very well

and I can tell you he is more focused than ever. “He wants to win

and he wants to prove that this young team can be winners, can be

successful. That’s his dream and he’s working very hard for it.”

Fabregas was close to returning to his boyhood club Barcelona

during the summer, only for Arsenal to stand firm as they rejected

a £35million offer for the Spain midfielder. The World Cup

winner insists he has had no backlash from Gunners fans. “No, not

at all,” he said. “I was honest about it all at the time and I

think they understood the situation perfectly, 100%. “There has not

been one single person either at the stadium or in the street who

has said anything bad to me about it – no, no. Nothing, nothing at

all and that’s been very welcome and appreciated. “I am just

focused on having a great season at Arsenal and winning something.”

Asked whether he would prefer to win the Barclays Premier League or

Champions League, he replied: “That’s a difficult one. “I must say

I would be very proud to win the Premier League but – and maybe a

lot of the fans are against me in this – winning the Champions

League is the one thing I would like to win the most. “After

winning the European Championships, then the World Cup, the

Champions League is the next big one for me.”
