Wenger tells Arsenal boo-boys to lay off Chelsea star Fabregas

first_img1 Cesc Fabregas and Arsene Wenger Arsene Wenger is pleading with the Arsenal boo-boys to lay off former captain Cesc Fabregas and give him the reception he deserves when they face Chelsea on Sunday.Fabregas is set to face his former club for the first time after he left the north London club in controversial circumstances back in August 2011.Many Arsenal fans have never forgiven the Spanish midfielder for the way he went about wanting a move to his boyhood club and will be even more upset that he is now playing for their London rivals.But Wenger is adamant that he didn’t need Fabregas back at the club this summer and is hoping that the fans will remember all the good times he had during his memorable spell and will not boo him.Wenger said: “Everyone respects Cesc here. I want him to get the reception he deserves on Sunday.“When he left we bought Ozil to buy an offensive player. We have Cazorla, we have Wilshere, we have Ramsey, we have Oxlade-Chamberlain, who are all offensive players.“We were not in the need to buy offensive players. It makes sense if you just look at the balance of the team. I think that’s a decision that is easy to understand.”last_img
