Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas has said that he is looking at the opportunity to win the Euro 2012, which would put an end to the miserable season that he has been having with Barcelona. Even though he has won many trophies in his first season with the Spanish club, it has been viewed as a disappointment by many due to the absence of the league title and the Champions League. Fabregas has said that even though he likes the view that the failure to win the league title would be considered as a disappointment, he wants to win the Euro 2012 with Spain.
Barcelona failed to retain their league title for the first time in four seasons after many have been criticising the arrival of Cesc Fabregas as the main reason for it. The former Arsenal midfielder was extremely good in the first half of the season, but was equally poor in the second half of the campaign. His presence within the squad meant that manager Guardiola had to change a number of tactics in order to incorporate the former Arsenal man within the team. Many believe that it has spoilt the balance of the team.
“The goals flowed at first but I wasn’t sure how well I was playing. However, the team was winning trophies and people judge you on that more than anything. Then there was a long spell where the ball simply refused to go in for me and people judge you on that. The whole process has confirmed something I already suspected – that football isn’t easy. You can do everything really well and it’s still not good enough sometimes. Nobody remembers who was involved in the build-up to a goal but they can recall the guy who put it away,” said Fabregas after scoring the fourth goal in the 4-0 win over Ireland.
