Arsenal's Cesc: No chance following Henry to Spain

Arsenal ace Cesc Fabregas insists he never considered following Thierry Henry to Spain this summer.

Henry joined Barcelona just as Real Madrid were pursuing Cesc, but he 20 year-old told the Guardian: "No. I always knew I would stay. Especially when Thierry went, I knew it would be a very important year for me at the club. It is a personal challenge but also a challenge for the team as well - to win something without Thierry.

"He was such a winner and of course we will miss that, but we have other options now. And if we can make it then it will mean we are a great team. We are starting a new project without players like Thierry and Patrick [Vieira] but we are capable of something special."
