Wenger reveals REGRET over Fabregas ahead of his return on Sunday

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed his regret over Cesc Fabregas leaving the North London club to return to FC Barcelona in 2011.

Wenger, quoted by Sky Sports, has said a possible return for Fabregas to Arsenal was not as “clean” as it appeared but deflected talk over the terms ahead of the weekend fixture against Chelsea.

“I cannot speak to you about that now because that will not help us to win the game on Sunday,” Wenger said.

“We will have to discuss that one day, with all the terms. It is not as clean as that.”

Wenger went on to highlight his regret over the former Arsenal captain’s departure.

“The regret I have is that he wanted to leave here. This club and myself had a very positive influence on Cesc’s life, so I would be a bit uncomfortable to have to justify today why he is not here.”

Fabregas has played a hugely influential role in Chelsea’s quest to regain the Premier League title, scoring three goals, including the match winner against Queens Park Rangers two weeks ago, and racking up an astonishing 16 assists so far.

If Chelsea are to win on Sunday at the Emirates, they will be just three points away from winning the title. Fabregas played a pivotal role in Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Arsenal earlier in the season, assisting Diego Costa to put the game out of reach, and will hope to help the Blues to victory against his former side once again on Sunday.
