Bacary Sagna “was surprised” to see Cesc Fabregas’ comments that he felt only two of his Arsenal teammates were at his “level” when he decided to leave the club.
After eight years at Arsenal – with only an FA Cup and Community Shield to show – Fabregas swapped north London for Barcelona in 2011 before returning to the Premier League in 2014 with Chelsea.
And speaking to the Arsecast podcast, Fabregas revealed how his team-mates at the Emirates Stadium helped him make his decision to leave as they weren’t at his “level”.
Fabregas said: “I was the captain, I always felt so much pressure on myself. I had to lead this team to win something. I gave everything. Sometimes, I used to go home after we lost and I used to cry, I used to suffer, I used to spend sleepless nights suffering. (Text courtesy Vanguard)
