Series of Cesc Fabregas Interviews Resurface After His Move to Chelsea

Sean SwabyFeatured Columnist IVFebruary 24, 2016

Since Cesc Fabregas' move from Arsenal to Barcelona, he had remained somewhat of a loved figure in certain factions for his not-so-secret love for the North London club even after the move. 

Of course, on Thursday, when Fabregas' rumoured move to Chelsea was made official, he was immediately vilified by most Arsenal types, even though the Gunners had the first option to sign him. 

Fittingly, a series of interviews made the rounds in the immediate aftermath of Fabregas saying that he'd never play for a Premier League team other than Arsenal. 

In an interview with The Telegraph in April 2011, Fabregas claimed that he wouldn't pull a Fernando Torres and play for an English rival. 

If some day I leave Arsenal it will never be to sign for another English team. I'm very sure. 

How it happened (Torres), in so few hours, I didn't expect it. I didn't imagine Torres leaving the Premiership, but neither that he would leave in the middle of the season. That said, I believe that it was a good decision. 

In the aftermath, unsurprisingly, red Arsenal Fabregas shirts were burned.
