Fabregas: Rosicky my best bud

Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas has revealed that Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky is his best friend at the club, adding that the playmaker's choice of restaurant in the capital is not a favourite of the Spaniard. "Tomas Rosicky is my best friend, but I get on well with everyone at Arsenal," he said. "Rosicky is one I spend most of my time with and outside of football he is the person I do most things with. "He takes me to his Czech restaurant, it’s not very good. We play Playstation, watch DVDs, or whatever."

And the 22-year-old has revealed his delight at seeing the midfielder finally return to action after 20 months sitting on the sidelines, describing him as a new signing for Arsene Wenger.

“I am really happy for him, he has been through a lot. I told him to be strong and to keep believing in himself and that he could play football again,” said Fabregas.

“It’s great to see him play. He has played a few games now and I think he has done very well.

“He gives you great confidence because he has the class and the touch. It’s great to have him in the team. It’s like a new signing for us.”
