Arsenal Star Cesc Fabregas: Premier League The ‘Hardest To Win’


Skipper hell-bent on giving Gunners fans what they want most.

Cesc Fabregas, the Arsenal captain, has dubbed thePremier League “the hardest to win” of all Europe’s major domestic competitions.

The Gunners have not won a trophy since their triumph in the 2005 FA Cup, gradually slipping from perennial title contenders to top-four filler during Fabregas’ time at the club.

And while other in his situation perhaps would not be picky as to which piece of silverware ended the drought, the Spaniard has his sights set squarely on Manchester United’s crown.

He told
The Sun: “All the top teams in Europe want to win their own league but the English is the hardest to win. I want to win it even more now than when I first arrived.”

But the Premier League title wasn’t always Fabregas’ top priority. He admitted that when he first set foot at Highbury as a 16-year-old, continental and international success ranked higher in his mind.

However, during his time in north London, the midfielder has come to appreciate the significance of the ‘bread and butter’ competition in the eyes of the supporters.

“I’ve realised with every year how big the Premier League is,” he said.

“Growing up it’s about Champions League and World Cups. But, once you come to play here, you realise how the fans live for the Premier League.

“The league is really competitive and I like it a lot. I think in England the Premier League is the biggest thing.”
