Preparations at Spain are much different, says Fabregas
Want-away Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas has revealed that Spain’s pre-match preparations are much different than those he has experienced whilst at the Emirates.
The 23-year old, who still has hopes of joining Barcelona this summer, admitted that the differences between club and international life are vast when it comes to preparing for their games.
Speaking to the BBC, Fabregas said:
“Here they give us much more information than they do at Arsenal, definitely.”
“At Arsenal we don’t really look at anything from the other team, we look for ourselves and that’s it.
“Here, maybe two three days before the game, we start looking at some videos, we know more or less the starting eleven that is going to play … we know nearly everything about them.
“You just have to have your group of friends here, you play cards, you play Playstation, you have fun. We train morning, afternoon, go to sleep early … you don’t have much time to think about it really.”
Catalan giants Barcelona are refusing to give up on their bid to sign the Arsenal midfielder even after having a £30million bid turned down and Spaniard telling Gunners boss Wenger he wanted to leave.
Spain lost their first World Cup group match 1-0 earlier this evening. Fabregas didn’t manage to get off the bench with Switzerland’s Gelson Fernandes netting the game’s only goal in the 52nd minute.
