Cesc Fabregas believes the hard work that he has put in his game right since the childhood has helped him become the kind of Footballer that he is today.
Fabregas is seen as one of the finest playmakers in the modern game.
Only at the age of 28, he has played for three top clubs in the world and has been able to make his name everywhere.
His Arsenal career, Barcelona career and Chelsea career, which is currently in pursuit, have all been equally fruitful.
The 28-year old talked to a television network last week about his childhood days and how it was difficult for him to manage both his academics as well as his Football training.
In that interview, he said, “I joined the Barcelona academy as a kid of 10 and the life really got tough for me from there onwards for the next few years.”
“The place where I lived was a bit of distance away from the academy and it would take more than one hour to reach. So, once my school got over in the evening, I would drive and get there at 7, attend the training session for a couple of hours and then, back to home at around 11.”
“But, the hard work that I did at that time facilitated me a great deal.”
“Passion is very important for the kids who are aspiring to be professional sportsmen one day. If you are passionate about the game that you are trying to make your career in and you believe you have got the skills to be able to do that, nobody can stop you from fulfilling your dream.”
Apart from having achieved a lot in club Football, Fabregas has had a great international career too.
He has already won close to 100 caps for his motherland Spain.
