Cesc Fabregas has become the perfect exhibit of how to leave a club with dignity and still hold the respect of their fans.
The former Gunners captain left in the 2011 summer transfer window, and has become an integral member of a strong Barcelona side.
Now 26-years-old, there has always been one regret in his career – to lead Arsenal to silverware.
The Gunners are now in a prime position to end their trophy drought (touch-wood), leading the Premier League and through to the Knockout Stages of the Champions League, while also still in the FA Cup.
The Spain international admits he still watches every Arsenal match and is enjoying their success this season. Just like a true Gooner, he’s hoping they can end they can win a trophy this season but it will take some serious consistency.

He told the Daily Mail:
I watch every game of Arsenal’s. I am very happy how they are playing, they have a strong squad, they are top of the league.
I cannot wait to see if they can lift the trophy finally.
It would be amazing, they need to be very consistent between now and the end of the season.
The Gunners are in an exciting position but now face an incredible run of fixtures that will test their title winning credentials. As Cesc said, it will take an immeasurable amount of consistency to beat the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City, however they have the ability to do so and hopefully the belief to boot.
While many are writing Arsenal off as favourites, as long as the fans, the players and the boss believe then they can finally end this wretched trophy drought. It’s positive to hear words of encouragement from our former talismanic captain, now lets start with three points at Anfield this weekend.
