Twitter reacts as Fabregas bids farewell to English Football

Cesc Fabregas’ love affair with English has seemingly come to an end with reports suggesting he is on the verge of joining Monaco.

The 31-year-old Spain international broke down in tears as he made what is expected to be his last ever appearances for Chelsea during the Blues 2-0 FA Cup win over Nottingham Forest earlier today.

Fabregas burst onto the scene as a 16-year-old with Arsenal and will go down in history as one of the classiest playmakers the Premier League has ever seen. Here’s some of the best reaction to news of his departure.

Chelsea fans give the Spaniard a rousing send off and it all gets a bit too much for the talented playmaker.

Fabregas is now expected to link up with his former Arsenal teammate Thierry Henry at Monaco.

Not a bad record after over 500 games in English Football.

Fabregas is second on the all time list of Premier League assist makers, but is in fact the quickest player to reach 100 assists.

Chelsea fans across the globe have been paying tribute to Fabregas’ role in their two most recent Premier League title triumphs.

MOTD host and twitteraholic Gary Linker pays tribute. 

Former Middlesbrough and Spain midfielder Gaizka Mendieta labels Fabregas as a Premier League legend.
