Arsenal skipper not losing sleep over taking on Man UApril 17th, 2009 - 2:57 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr.17 (ANI): Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas says he dreams every day of lifting his first trophy and he is not losing any sleep over a Champions League semi-final clash with Manchester United.Fabregas believes the Gunners have the fearlessness of youth on their side going into the eagerly awaited all-English showdown.
The Sun quoted Arsenal’s Spanish skipper as saying: “I respect United for what they have achieved in the last few years. For me, they are still the best. But I am not scared of them. At Arsenal, we are not scared of anyone and the way we play shows that. We might not have the same experience as United or Chelsea but I am not concerned about that. I don’t mind at all.”"We have the confidence, the illusion and the excitement to play. We always try to go forward and have a direct, aggressive way of playing on the counter-attack,” he added.
Fabregas’ swaggering faith in his colleagues is shared by winger Theo Walcott, who suggests it is United who could have most to fear at Old Trafford in two weeks’ time. (ANI)
