Praised Messi Encourages Fabregas Move
Once again the rumours seem to mount up that Arsenal star man, Cesc Fabregas is set to join Barcelona in the Summer. This time, Lionel Messi has spoke up, saying that it must happen sooner rather than later. The lure of trophies and championship winning football is something that is too good to resist.
Messi told Sport.es: “I think that in the end Cesc will do what he feels like doing, the same with Barcelona,” “I am certain he wants to come to Barcelona because he has realised this is the only club where he can win.”
Meanwhile, Arsenals centre back Johan Djourou has described playing against Lionel Messi as ‘amazing.’ The Arsenal team did a very good job of keeping him and the rest of the Barcelona team quiet.
Johan said: “I think we made it hard for Messi.” “It’s not like he was always clear, one-on-one with the keeper.” “He always had somebody next to him, someone tackling him, and it’s always difficult when you have someone under pressure.” “It was amazing to play against him. For a defender to test your skill against the best, to play against the kind of player that can make the difference, it was amazing.” “Barcelona always try to find solutions on the pitch so it is down to you to make it as hard as possible for them. I think we did that well.”
