Cesc Fabregas has warned title-chasing Man City: “Your millions still can’t buy team spirit.” The World Cup winner said that while the Blues are now serious contenders for the English crown, he feels that it takes time to develop the sort of “soul and spirit” present at Arsenal, according to The Telegraph.
The 23-year-old said: “Of course you cannot buy it in one year. You need a few years to get everyone together. It’s not easy. You don’t do it in one or two seasons. They have a lot of money and they are taking advantage of it. Obviously it’s not our style, but we respect everyone’s decision.”
Eduardo thanks fans.
Eduardo scored an emotional goal on his return to the Emirates with new club Shakhtar on Tuesday night – and was touched to hear the home fans cheer as though he had scored once more for their club. The Croatian international had vowed not to celebrate should be find the net – and stayed true to his word when his volley struck the net with 7 minutes left.
Speaking to Arsenal TV Online, the 27-year-old said: “It was unbelievable. It was like I still play for Arsenal, when I came back and they started to call my name. It was fantastic.”
Arsenal’s interest in Egyptian international Ahmed Elmohamady has been dealt a blow as the on-loan Sunderland defender has hinted he would like to make his move to Wearside permanent. The 23-year-old has started all eight of the Black Cats’ Premier League games this season, and his impressive performances have linked him with moves to the Gunners or Man United.
But according to Goal.com, the defender has said: “I like the vibe here. It’s a nice place and people are so friendly. Everyone has been so helpful, especially here at the club. I feel as if I’m back home in Egypt.”
