Fabregas – Fans will back Wenger and he will return Arsenal to the top

The ex-Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas is fully confident that Arsene Wenger will recover from the battering he has received this season after losing both Fabregas and Nasri last summer, and thinks that the majority of Arsenal fans will support him.

“It has been painful,” said Fabregas. “It’s been painful because I want them to do well as a club, and they’re my friends and then there is the boss, who I admire so much and who I’m so grateful to.

The young Brazilian Wellington Silva was hailed as a world-beater when Arsene Wenger bought him from Fluminense in 2010, but he couldn’t move to England until January 2011. As soon as the deal was signed he became too big for his boots and started living a playboys life and was banished from the Brazilian giants first team after many disciplinary problems.

It was hoped that he would regain his form on arriving at Arsenal, and on his debut in January he scored for the youth team at Old Trafford but due to his lack of playing team he failed to gain a work permit and was loaned out to Levante in Spain.
