Arsenal hero Keown questions Cesc Chelsea decision

Arsenal hero Martin Keown has questioned Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas' move to Chelsea.

Named club captain in 2008, the Spaniard developed a strong attachment to the Gunners and described Wenger as "like a father figure" in an emotional parting tribute in 2011.

Keown admits a move to another English club, particularly fellow title-challengers Chelsea, would prove difficult for both Fabregas and Arsenal's supporters.

"I don't think Chelsea would be an ideal move for Fabregas having been at Arsenal before but it remains to be seen where he ends up," Keown said.

"People move on, people make their decisions and if he ends up playing for one of Arsenal's rivals that's football, it's just the way it is."
