The Spanish maestro dedicated eight years to the gunners, but unfortunately could not guide Arsenal to any silverware which still remains one of his biggest regrets after leaving the club.
Fabregas said on the situation:
I thought it was the right moment. I’d given everything for Arsenal,
I played with a broken leg. I played when my grandfather died.
He died at 7am. The coach said ‘Go home’ and I said ‘No, I want to play’.
I gave everything but you reach a moment when you say: I can’t give any more.

I’ll always have that thorn in my side. I wish I had gone having won something.
People said I took the easy option. I think I took the hardest option.
I’m competing with the best central midfielders in the world. I’ll have to work twice as hard to win a place.
Personally I had no angry feelings towards Fabregas for leaving, but of course was disappointed we lost a great captain and player. While he did leave I felt Fabregas was definitely a loyal Arsenal player and of course to return to your boyhood clud is understandable. What do you guys think? Feel free to leave a comment below.
