Xavi: 'We all know what Cesc Fabregas can do. He was brought up here, and knows how Barça play. The most important is that players understand our game, and Cesc does that. He came already brought up on it'
Xavi: 'There’s real quality in our Barça midfield. Every year there’s more competition for places, and those of us who have been here longer are there to help. Thiago is brutal, and he makes a difference. As for Cesc, we all know what he can do. He was brought up here, and knows how Barça play. The most important is that players understand our game, and Cesc does that. He came already brought up on it'
Guardiola: 'Cesc is a player who we have been following for years. He’s a top level player and his anarchy works well within the order we have. He’s free to move where he wants, he’s physically strong, reads the game well, can make the killer pass, can score, he works hard... Cesc now has to work at adapting himself to a more static role and get to cover even more ground than Xavi'
- Since the Cesc transfer saga began over 3 years ago now, I always thought he would be a great addition to our squad. The Fab4 obviously had a considerable degree of blaugrana DNA left in his blood due to his time spent at La Masia.
If I am completely honest though, Cesc's performance since his return to FC Barcelona has surpassed all my expectations. While I was hoping for him to score a few goals and gradually build his place into the team, I would have never imagined such an impact so early on.
