Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas admitted he is yet to hit top form this season as he revealed how he will wait for his hamstring injury to heal completely before making his comeback.
In his programme notes for Tuesday’s Carling Cup game against Wigan, the Spaniard said how it is not possible to set a return date adding how it is very frustrating not to be able to help his team mates who however did very well in battling their way past Aston Villa last week at Villa Park.
On his form, the midfielder said how he started brightly after returning from South Africa as World Cup winner but also how the injury blocked his progress.
Fabregas, 23, concluded by saying how it is better for the Gunners to go out there without his services as he is simply not fit enough to be an asset for the side and how he will keep on working hard to fully recover from all his problems.
On his fitness level, Fabregas said:
I don’t want to put a date on my return yet, I will take my time. The team did really well without me against Aston Villa, so I will wait until it is completely ready.
It is so frustrating, though. It seems when something like that happens, it all goes wrong at the same time, so you have to be strong, put everything behind you and keep working.
I know I haven’t been at my best this season. I started the season really strongly, the first few games, but after that I had an injury and got into a pattern of missing a few games, and then starting again.
So it is better my team-mates play, because they are fitter than me. I will just try to get back whenever I can. My team-mates are helping me a lot and I am trying my best.
