Captain Cesc Fabregas was full of praise for the Arsenal fans as he revealed he understands the pain as another season with no trophies will end on Sunday.
Speaking to the Official Matchday Programme, the midfielder explained that many are those who travel all over Europe to follow the team they love even if they have families, jobs and other commitments in life, something that is wonderful to see.
Even if criticised by some, the 23-year old was especially full of praise for the home support as he declared that they were amazing when the Gunners played against Chelsea, Barcelona and Everton at the Emirates this season.
Ahead of next season, the Catalan concluded by saying that he understands that the fans are suffering because of the lack of silverware, adding that the players will make sure that this will change, next season.
On the Arsenal fans, Fabregas said:
I want to thank the fans, whether they follow us at home, away or both.
Away from home, we often feel as if we are playing in our own stadium; so many people travel all over Europe with us despite having families, jobs and other commitments, and their dedication is remarkable. What they do is wonderful and we appreciate it a lot.
Our home fans have constantly amazed me too – I think of the sensational atmosphere they created against Chelsea, and then against Barcelona.
The match against Everton also stays in my mind – we were 1-0 down but they pushed us so hard to help us turn it into a win.
We understand how much the fans have suffered through our not winning trophies for a few years, but we will make sure this changes.
