Cesc Fabregas played against Swansea on Saturday afternoon, and it was a landmark for not just the 29-year-old but for Spanish players as well. He’s the first Spanish player to reach 300 EPL games, and the Spaniard was happy with the feat.
“To be honest, I feel humbled and very proud,” Fabregas said. “I’ve worked very hard to make it to 300 and all I can say is thank you to everyone who has helped me reach this mark – to Arsenal, to Chelsea, to Arsene Wenger, Mourinho, Hiddink and Antonio.
“Obviously thanks goes to all the fans who support me, my family and friends as well. It has been many years, although it doesn’t feel like it, it feels like it was yesterday, but it’s been a long journey and hopefully it will be an even longer one.”
Fabregas marked the occasion with a goal and an assist, earning him the man of the match.
