London: Spanish footballer Cesc Fabregas has denied criticizing Arsenal after he was quoted as saying that he doubted if the club could win the Premier League or the Champions League in the near future.
Fabregas had left Arsenal during the transfer window last month to rejoin Barcelona after six years without winning a trophy at Emirates Stadium.
In an interview carried by Sport magazine, the midfielder had also questioned Arsenal’s chances of enjoying success due to their inability to compete financially with England’s other big clubs.
However, the 24-year-old has denied making such comments and has reiterated that he would never say a bad word about his old club.
“I’d never speak 1 bad word abt AFC, here there’s once more prove that so many people put in newspaper wtv they want and its not professional,” Fabregas posted on his Twitter account.
“I want Arsenal to be successful as much as every single fan. Thats not why i left, it was never in my mind. AFC made me who i am today. And nobody will ever change that. I never gave any interview away since my press conference at my presentation and there i just said the truth and what came out of my heart.”
“Great words abt this great football club cause that just what they deserve: success and trophies. People can h8 me 4 leaving or remember that i gave my all for the club. But me talking 1 bad word or saying smthng against AFC will not seen,” he added.
