Fabregas: Could return to Arsenal in som

Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has stressed his love for former club Arsenal and indicated he would consider a future role at the Emirates Stadium - if not during his playing career then after.

The 26-year-old arrived in north London as a teenager in 2003 and spent eight years with the Gunners, before returning to Catalonia and his boyhood club two years ago for an initial £25.5million after a protracted transfer saga.

Fabregas paid an emotional tribute to Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger after completing his return home in 2011 and admitted at the time that his failure to lift a trophy as Arsenal captain will always be his "biggest regret".

Speaking in an interview with the Guardian, he said: "Arsenal is in my heart and always will be. I don't know if I'll have the opportunity to go back and play there one day, or maybe after football.

"It's a club that is always going to be there and will always open its doors to me. The club's like a family so, even if it wasn't as a coach, I'm sure they'd give me the chance to play a role.

"Sol (Campbell) is there now. Arsenal help a lot with the formation of coaches. (Dennis) Bergkamp also went there two, three times a week when he was doing his coaching badges. In that sense it's a lovely club and there might be the chance to do something with them."

Arsenal sit top of the Premier League after eight games, and Fabregas believes this may well be the season Wenger's men end a trophy drought which stretches back to 2005 - although he predicts the festive fixtures will be key.

"I really hope so," he said. "They've started very well. They look very strong; let's see how they last.

"In the Premier League you can be going well and then you lose two games and you slip away quickly. It's very sudden.

"A lot gets decided over Christmas: the team that hangs in there best, that can resist the best, will take the title."
