The star midfielder of Barcelona, Cesc Fabregas, has admitted that he wasn’t able to stand up to the expectations of the club in the later part of the last season, but, he has said that the new coach, Tito Vilanova, is helping him a lot in the practice sessions and he would regain his form in the upcoming season.
Fabregas joined Barcelona in the last season. Before that, he used to play for Arsenal. The club had massive hopes from him and he started the last season pretty well. He played his first match for Barcelona against Real Madrid. His first goal for Barcelona was against FC Porto in UEFA Super Cup. But, as the season progressed, his performance gradually deteriorated.
On being asked why he wasn’t able to maintain the same kind of form throughout the last season, Fabregas said that he tried to improvise too much. He should have kept the things simple and should have done the basics right. But, he tried to change his playing style a bit too much and that proved to be costly. As per Fabregas, he would play his natural game in the upcoming season and would not try to transform his playing style.
There have been speculations that Fabregas might not get a chance to feature in the first team of Barcelona at the start of the season. Now, with the come back of David Villa, it has become even more difficult for him to find a place in the first team. On being asked about that, Fabregas said that it is up to the team management to decide who should be given a chance to feature in the first team, but, if he gets a chance, he would try to put up an improved performance and contribute a bit more than the previous season.
