Hats off to The Mail's Pete Jenson for securing an interview with Fabregas who talks all things Arsenal.
Calm down Gunners fans, he's not thinking of coming back from Barcelona. Not yet, anyway.
The former Gunner has opened the door to a potential life as a coach, and learning his trade at Arsenal appeals.
Speaking to Jenson, Fabregas said:
I’m sure they would give me the option to help out there. Sol Campbell is there at the moment.
Dennis Bergkamp also went there two or three times a week to train when he was doing his coaching badges.
It’s a great club in that sense.
It's the current Arsenal that dominates the interview, and Fabregas is convinced Arsene Wenger's side are on the right path.
Fabregas describes Mesut Ozil as a "spectacular signing" whom they could not let pass them by.
Jenson's piece has the quotes:
Ozil is the man who makes the difference in the final third.
He will find so much space in the Premier League and he’s a player who with space kills you. His final pass is brilliant.
And he will score more goals in England than he did in Spain.
Fabregas says Ozil will bring out the best in Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey, while he feels the return of Theo Walcott will make the Gunners even stronger:
The only player who maybe is a bit different is Theo Walcott but you also need that type of player because it’s true that at the end of pass, pass, pass you need a Pedro—someone who will get behind the opposition. Someone who gives depth and hits space.
Fabregas also praises experienced heads Mathieu Flamini, Per Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski, so the future looks bright for Arsenal.
