Cesc Fabregas played at both Arsenal and Chelsea but thinks that his spell at Highbury and at the Emirates Stadium will still stick out as remarkable throughout his entire career.
In 2003, Fabregas arrived from Barcelona’s La Masia Academy in north London when he was only 16, and after making his debut against Rotherham in the League Cup he became Arsenal’s youngest-ever first-team member months later.
Making over 300 appearances and winning the 2004-05 FA Cup, he managed to spend eight seasons at the club under Arsene Wenger.
A transfer back to Barcelona and later Chelsea followed, Arsenal supporter Thierry Henry told Cesc that red was his color when with both periods bringing the championship trophy he was unable to achieve with the Gunners.
Henry said in an Instagram message to his former teammate “When I think about you, you’re in a red jersey.”
“I know people would say you’ve earned the league and been a Chelsea legend, but you’re an Arsenal man.”
Fabregas replied: “For the remainder of my life, I am and it would be part of me. I could never have imagined I’d have conflicting emotions for these two teams, but you go there and encounter people, you win trophies, you become important and you win titles. You end up having so much love for the club.”
