Arsenal's Cesc: I didn't want Liverpool draw

Cesc Fabregas admits he would've preferred Arsenal have drawn a foreign team rather than Liverpool in their Champions League quarterfinal.

Fabregas, speaking to Spanish radio EFE, said: "Obviously, everybody dreams, but you have to work hard to make dreams become reality. If you stay in bed then you are never going to obtain your dream.

"I am dreaming of playing in another Champions League final. If it is against Barcelona it will be difficult because they have a great team.

"All I want is another chance of playing in a final, whoever that is against. If we won, then in five years' time nobody will care who the opposition was.

"I would have preferred to play a European team. To play in the Champions League against the same players that you play every week and see on the television, well, I would have preferred Barcelona, Madrid, an Italian team.

"But this is what we have been given and we have to deal with it. I am still a youngster here.

"When you look at the team I am still one of the youngest and am still a boy really. I do feel important and for any player that is vital."
