Cesc Fabregas has defended his record at Barcelona after an Arsenal fan questioned his decision to leave the Gunners.
The Spanish midfielder was Arsenal’s captain and talisman when he left for his boyhood club in 2011 – much to the dismay of Gunners fans.
After a trophyless career at Arsenal, Fabregas won numerous titles in Spain and added to his trophy collection when he returned to England with Chelsea.
But Sacramento Bee columnist Marcos Breton, a die-hard Arsenal supporter, insists Fabregas was wrong to leave the Emirates.
The former Gunners star tweeted a picture of several shirts from his career, asking his followers, ‘Which one brings you the best memories?’

Breton replied: “The one where you Arsenal captain. You traded that to sit on the bench at Barcelona.”
And Fabregas hit back, providing the journalist with a list of what he achieved with the Spanish giants.
He tweeted: “I started in 121 games out of the 151 I played… I won 6 titles, I scored in 2 finals, won a league of 100 points having played 36 games, 43 goals and 47 assists… but yeah, cool.”

The numbers aren’t quite correct: Fabregas scored 42 times during his second spell in Catalonia, while he played 32 times during the 2012/13 season when the club racked up 100 points.
But the point still stands – he won six trophies with the club and that’s not including the Euro 2012 title he lifted with Spain in that time.
