Xavi: 'Cesc Fabregas plays as if he'd never left Barça'
Xavi: 'You can tell Cesc Fabregas is a FC Barcelona youth player. All our attacking concepts are clear in his brain, we don't have to explain anything to him in terms of positioning on the pitch, he plays as if he'd never left Barça. It really feels as if he was here last season, and the one before that one too!'
Pique: 'Professionally talking, Barça have signed a brilliant football player in Cesc Fabregas. On a personal note, I am incredibly happy for him as he's a great person and a good friend of mine'
- I was very pleased with Cesc's performance against Real Madrid at the Camp Nou. In just 15 minutes, he showed why Guardiola has insisted in signing him for years. Playing El Clasico in your first match for Barça's first team could have turned out to be a disaster but, instead, he slotted in perfectly in midfield and showed that his connection with Messi is as powerful now as it was when they played together in our Cadete A youth team.
CESC FABREGAS: A NEW STAR FOR OUR ALREADY POWERFUL MIDFIELD!!!!!
