Fabregas backs Arsenal to be a constant threat for trophies

Cesc Fabregas has backed Arsenal to be ‘a constant threat’ for major trophies amid the club’s development under Mikel Arteta.

Arsenal are top of the Premier League table on goal difference with seven games to go, as the north Londoners chase a first top-flight crown in two decades.

The Gunners are also in the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time since 2009/10 and will face Bayern Munich in their second leg next week, following a 2-2 draw at the Emirates in Tuesday’s first encounter.


Former Arsenal captain Fabregas has discussed the club’s hopes of being crowned champions this season and has backed the north London side to be regular challengers for the biggest prizes in the coming campaigns.

“Obviously you can imagine what it will mean – more than just winning a title but the belief will be back, the trust between the players and the staff and the fans and the whole club,” Fabregas told the PA news agency.

“The family that was there when I was there will be back, the moments of ‘we are strong and we know we can win’; at the moment it is a little bit ‘are we ready, are we not?’

“If they can manage to win the first one [under Arteta], I believe it could become a constant threat for Arsenal to be challenging for all the top titles.”

Fabregas believes Arsenal have benefitted from their patience with Arteta, who was appointed as head coach without previous managerial experience in 2019. The Gunners have progressed in each season under the Spaniard and Fabregas has praised the club’s board for their show of faith.

“It is all about Edu and the owners giving him the time and the right tools to prove himself,” he said.


“When this happens, the structure, the vision and the trust comes together and things happen. That is why I am happy.

“I always use them as an example, the first two years of Mikel, in any other club or someone else managing the situation could have just got rid of Mikel and said ‘we are moving to another direction’.

“But they had a clear plan, a clear process, they had the right steps, they invested in young quality players and now you get all the results of these ups and downs of the first two or three years.

“They are there, they have done really well and they are a proper example of how football should be done.”
