Napoli ace and former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas “At Arsenal there were fantastic, top, top players, but at Chelsea we didn’t really care if one day we had to win 1-0 by not touching the ball for the whole match. Fabregas, who joined London rivals Chelsea in 2014, highlights the Blues’ desire to win at all costs as the main difference between the two clubs “At Arsenal, and it was maybe partly my fault at some point as the leader and captain that I was, sometimes we forgot that to win leagues and Champions Leagues, you need to win ugly. “When I was young I always wanted to play the beautiful game, but there are always five or six games a season that you need to struggle but win.

That’s the main difference.” After calling time on his four-and-a-half-year stay at Chelsea in January 2019, Fabregas secured a move to Monaco. He has since made 37 appearances for the French outfit, who were in ninth place at the time of its curtailment in April. Loading… Close to a decade after leaving Arsenal, former team captain Cesc Fabregas says he regrets not gingering the team to be more ruthless and ‘ugly’ with a view to winning trophies. The Spaniard insists he is partly to blame for the Gunners lack of success in during his term as captain under former coach Arsene Wenger. Fabregas, 33, spent eight years with the Gunners after emerging from their academy ranks in 2003. The Spaniard racked up 303 appearances under Wenger and was named captain in 2008, but their FA Cup win three years earlier was the only time he claimed silverware in north London. After coming up short in his bid to win the Premier League, Fabregas sealed a dream move to Barcelona in 2011 and got his hands on the Spanish title in his debut season Yet when his time at the Nou Camp came to an end in 2014, Arsenal’s reluctance to use their buy-back clause meant London rivals Chelsea swooped in – and it was a move that proved highly successful. The midfielder got his hands on two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the League Cup at Stamford Bridge – and he believes the west London club had a better understanding of winning at all costs than Arsenal “Some teams I played in at Arsenal and Chelsea were similar in terms of talent, but the difference I felt straightaway is that at Chelsea we were ruthless,” Fabregas told The Telegraph.

Axe to ‘disappear’ during Wisconsin, Minnesota game

first_imgUPDATE: Gary Andersen released a statement clarifying his comments in regards to the post game celebration. It appears as if the trophy will be presented in the winning team’s end zone rather than on the sidelines or in the locker room.————-When Wisconsin and Minnesota meet on Saturday for the 124th time, it will not only be for the right to hoist Paul Bunyan’s Axe, but more importantly, for the Big Ten West Division title and a trip to Indianapolis for the Big Ten Championship Game.But the winner of Saturday’s matchup between No. 14 Wisconsin and No. 22 Minnesota at Camp Randall will have a new wrinkle to their postgame celebrations. Wisconsin head coach Gary Andersen said the Axe will be held in the winning team’s locker room following the game as opposed to on the sidelines and will “disappear” during the game. The winning team will be able to bring the Axe onto the field to celebrate with fans after they receive it in their locker room where they will likely also “chop” down the losing team’s goal post.This is a result of what occurred in Minnesota last season when a scuffle broke out on the field between the Badgers and Gophers following Wisconsin’s 20-7 defeat of Minnesota.“Last year was unfortunate,” Andersen said. “I don’t think myself or [Minnesota head coach Jerry] Kill liked the way that it went down. I don’t think it’s good for college football and I don’t think it is good for our kids.“No one’s going to protect those kids when they’re on the field because the coaches are gone, the security is gone, there’s nobody out there and all of a sudden we’re asking 200 kids to run around the football field and not put themselves in harm’s way.”Andersen said Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez is on board with the decision but that he has yet to talk to Kill about it.But it appears as if Wisconsin running back and Heisman candidate Melvin Gordon doesn’t fully support Andersen’s decision. Regardless of where the Axe will be held, Saturday’s game is the biggest for either team and one of the most important games between the two rivals in recent memory.The Badgers and Gophers will kickoff at 2:30 p.m. Saturday from Camp Randall Stadium. However, UW defensive back Michael Caputo has a different thought about the new postgame Axe ceremony.last_img read more
