Cesc Fabregas aims dig at Arsenal failure when discussing title win with Chelsea

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas aimed a dig at his old club Arsenal when discussing the feeling of winning his first Premier League title with the Blues two years ago.
The Spain international left Arsenal for Barcelona in 2011, but returned to England with Chelsea three years later to win the 2014/15 title for the first time in his career.
Having often come frustratingly close during his time with the Gunners, Fabregas admitted it was a special feeling to finally pick up the trophy he’d fought so hard for for so long.

Given the torment of missing out time and time again with Arsenal, Fabregas even places the title victory above his World Cup and European Championship wins with the Spanish national side.
‘The day we won it, I remember I just went on my knees,’ Fabregas told Chelsea’s official site.
‘It was such a big relief. I remember I had competed a lot of years, sometimes we were close, sometimes not so much, but I really tried to give a lot everywhere I have been in the Premier League and to finally achieve it was one of the best moments in my career.

‘You can win a World Cup or a Euros, which is maybe the best a player can win, but when you’ve been trying to fight for a trophy for so many years, when you came close sometimes, you gave so much and fought so much for it and in the end it happens, it was personally a big achievement.’
