Arsenal's Chamakh admits he loves playing with Fabregas

Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh insists he loves to play with midfield maestro Cesc Fabregas.

The Moroccan, who has been a revelation up forward for the Gunners in his debut season, says the club captain is a delight to play alongside and has praised his long list of attributes.

"I love to play with Fabregas," Chamakh said. "He is a fantastic kid.

"I didn't really know him before I arrived here. In the few matches we have played together, I have found a player with fantastic talent, great vision and a very rare quality of passing."

And Chamakh added that the other young guns at Arsenal were all so easy to play with, making his transition from Bordeaux a simple one.

"Yohann Gourcuff (at Bordeaux) was superb, but when I see that I play with Nasri, Fabregas, Diaby or the little Wilshere, an adorable kid, I can say that I am very lucky," he added.
