Francesc Fabregas Senior, father of the Arsenal captain, revealed that his son was devastated after the Gunners crashed out of the Champions League last week.
Speaking to The Sun, he explained that he spoke with his son who was so upset for suffering an injury in the first part of the game that he “just wanted to shoot himself” as he was looking forward to a special game against his former club at the Camp Nou.
The father of the 23-year old continued by revealing an injury suffered after the 10th minute of the game which however did not prevent the Spaniard to stay on the pitch for the whole first half, hoping to make an impact for his side.
According to manager Arsene Wenger, Fabregas is set to miss this week’s away game against West Bromwich Albion but will hopefully be back for Arsenal after the International break, on April 2, against Blackburn Rovers at the Emirates.
On the Barcelona game, his father said:
I talked to Cesc after the game and he told me he felt so powerless that he just wanted to shoot himself.
He was looking forward to this match with much enthusiasm. It was such a special game for him because it was against Barcelona in the Nou Camp.
But it turned out to be one of the worst days of his life. His display was badly affected by his physical condition. From the first moment he realised he shouldn’t be playing.
After 10 minutes he was feeling his leg. He wanted to contribute but was left behind while Barcelona had a great game.
