Cesc Fabregas and his Chelsea side set to clash with Arsenal at the Stamford Bridge today
“I feel very attached, even now, to Arsenal. My feeling for the club, well I do not have to repeat myself, every single time we play against them, it is known,. Whoever doesn’t believe me or doesn’t feel it is this way, is not right.
“I know how I feel, my family does, and tha all that natters to me. Once I made the decision to leave Barcelona, Arsenal had the first option, and Barca had the obligation to contact Arsenal first.
“Then they had a week to basically respond yes or no to the buyout clause. I knew Chelsea were on the side, among other clubs, but after I spoke to Jose Mourinho in the meantime he convinced me that it was a great place to come.
“He motivated me so much in that meeting that my choice was very easy. I love Arsene, the man, I love him of course as a coach too. This is a decision he made.
“I always said that he’s like a father to me, and will always be.”
