Cesc lauds 'best team in the world' Barca

Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas says he will treat the upcoming clashes with Barcelona as ‘any other game’, but also admits that the Spanish giants are probably the ‘best team in the world’ right now.

The former Blaugrana youngster revealed his own excitement at drawing Pep Guardiola’s men, although he remains adamant that the Gunners won’t give Barca too much respect.

“It is very exciting,” the 22-year-old said. “We are going to play against the best team in Europe, probably in the world. The boys are really looking forward to it as it is another opportunity to play against a great team in a great stadium. It will be very exciting.

“But if we had been drawn against Bordeaux or Lyon we would have taken it the same way. Barcelona is a great team but we always go with the same mentality and that is to win.

“If you want to win this competition, you have to beat everyone who is coming.”

All of us know that Barca is the best team, but now they are our rivals, we must beat them for qualifying at semis, and I think that we can do it. They want Cesc because he suits in that circuit, like Henry suits at ours’, and that game will bring very hard memories for us, we will see it like a revenge to CL final four years ago.
