Cesc Fabregas had a tremendous amount of success throughout his time at Barcelona. Before joining Arsenal in 2003, the midfielder played six years with La Masia in Spain.
After eight years in north London, Fabregas returned to Barcelona in 2011 as part of a €34 million transfer deal with the club.
During his three seasons with the Catalan giants, Fabregas was a consistent performer. He appeared in 151 games for Barcelona. Thus, scoring 42 goals and assisted the club in winning six titles throughout his career.
Even while many Arsenal supporters still consider Fabregas to be a club icon, his departure was met with dissatisfaction by several others.
And one Arsenal supporter, @MarcosBreton, had a few choice words for Fabregas. In January of this year, Fabregas took to Twitter to share a collection of jerseys that he has worn during his career.
The graphic included jerseys that he had worn while playing for Arsenal, Barcelona, Chelsea, and AS Monaco. Fabregas then polled the audience to find out which one they preferred.
Upon responding, the Arsenal fan couldn’t keep his tongue from making fun of Fabregas’ time at Barcelona, writing: “The one where you @Arsenal captain. You traded that to sit on the bench at @FCBarcelona.”

Cesc Fabregas destroyed him with his reply
He saw the fan’s statement and felt compelled to respond to the comment. Using facts, the great midfielder was able to totally demolish the Arsenal supporter’s claim.
“I began 121 games out of the 151 games that I played. I won six championships, scored in two finals, and finished first in a league with 100 points after 36 games, 43 goals, and 47 assists… but, sure, that’s great,” Fabregas said.

That’s what you call a “great reaction,” in my opinion. The response from Fabregas, which was re-posted by ESPN, has gone viral once again.
Fabregas, at 34, is still competing at a high level in Ligue 1 with his club, Monaco. With his development as one of the finest midfielders of his time, he has established himself as a player who will draw attraction at every club for which he has played.
