Fabregas Says He'll Stay In North London

Midfielder Francesc Fabregas has squashed all speculation of his eventual departure from Arsenal this season by commiting himself to the North London club.

It was revealed that the Spaniard was happy at Arsenal but mainstream media still persist in publishing stories about his departure from the club, mainly due to a lack of trophies.

Now, the midfield maestro has come out and pledged his future to the Gunners, saying that he was focused on winning trophies with the North London club.

Fabregas said: "It's only the beginning of the season.

"We started well last season and were first for a long time so now it doesn't matter.

"All we can do is focus on the next game and learn from our mistakes.

"We've made a lot of mistakes on set pieces and defending and if we really want to win something then our attitude has to change.

"I want to stay here because this is the best place for me to stay.

"I want to win trophies here and I hope we can do it this year."
