Gunners skipper reiterates his commitment to club

Cesc Fabregas has once again played down any suggestion of him leaving Arsenal this summer. Speculation regarding the midfielder's future resurfaced on Thursday as the Spaniard blasted the Gunners' lack of success in recent years. The club captain admitted his disappointment at the 'impotence' at Emirates Stadium which has led to a four-year trophy drought. Having already been strongly linked with a move to Barcelona or Real Madrid, his outburst only served to fuel rumours of an imminent exit. However, Fabregas claims his comments were meant only as a rallying cry to those around him and insists he remains fully committed to the Arsenal cause.


"I'm not sure how many times I need to talk directly about my commitment to Arsenal as I continue to say the same thing over and over again, but it appears that every time I have spoken to the Spanish media recently, my words have bounced back to England, leaving question marks about my future," he told the club's official website. "So, for anyone who is unclear or may have misunderstood what my position is, let me make myself absolutely crystal clear. I am wholeheartedly committed to Arsenal and my future lies with this great club. "It is a fact that we have not won a trophy for four years and yes, I am angry about that, but that anger stems from the deep desire I have to win things with Arsenal. "I care about this club and believe in this team. I am proud to captain this team and proud to wear the shirt. It really upsets me when people express my thoughts otherwise. "The spirit in this squad is fantastic and we have the ability and mentality to compete on all fronts for silverware. Make no mistake, we are focused and determined to show that we are capable of achieving great things together."
