I made Kanu unhappy at Arsenal – Fabregas







Former Arsenal captain, Cesc Fabregas, has revealed he made former Super Eagles striker, Nwankwo Kanu angry during their time at the London club.

According to Fabregas, the incident happened when he joined the Gunners as a teenager in 2003 from Barcelona and was trying to impress the manager and his teammates in his first training at the club.

He was highly rated by manager Arsene Wenger, but largely unknown to the more established Arsenal stars which prompted an overzealous action from him.

“My first training when I joined Arsenal, I was all in my head trying to impress and I made a tackle on Kanu and he was so upset with me,” he told Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry, during an Instagram live video monitored by our correspondent.

“When you’re young, sometimes you don’t think; you just want to go there and prove yourself without realising that you’re playing alongside World Cup winners. At that moment you just want to do your best and most times, the passion gets the best out of you,” he added.

However, both players featured for Arsenal for one season before Kanu left for Portsmouth.

Fabregas went on to become the club captain and a legend at the North London side, scoring 57 goals and providing 92 assists in 304 appearances.
