Fabregas: I'm wholeheartedly committed to Arsenal

Cesc Fabregas has quashed speculation that he is set to quit the Emirates insisting that he is 'wholeheartedly committed to Arsenal'. The Spanish international has been linked with moves to both his former club Barcelona as well as their La Liga rivals Real Madrid.

The Gunners' captain was quoted earlier today complaining about the 'impotence' of his team-mates at the Emirates and the London club's lack of silverware in recent seasons. But Fabregas responded to rumours that he was set to leave Arsenal on www.arsenal.com.

"I'm not sure how many times I need to talk directly about my commitment to Arsenal as I continue to say the same thing over and over again, but it appears that every time I have spoken to the Spanish media recently, my words have bounced back to England, leaving question marks about my future."

The 22-year-old midfielder continued: "So, for anyone who is unclear or may have misunderstood what my position is, let me make myself absolutely crystal clear. I am wholeheartedly committed to Arsenal and my future lies with this great club."

However, Fabregas underlined his unhappiness with the fact that the Gunners have failed to win a competition in four years: "It is a fact that we have not won a trophy for four years and yes, I am angry about that, but that anger stems from the deep deep desire I have to win things with Arsenal."
