Cesc admits he takes after his manager in his obsession for football.
"When I speak to my girlfriend [Carla] at home sometimes she shouts at me because, at the same time, I am watching a small game from Holland, between two ordinary Dutch teams. Or maybe I am watching a replay of a game I've already seen four times. She gets cross with me because it's football, football, football! But it has always been like this. Maybe when I am thinking about a game, or watching it again to see what I did wrong or right, then I take time to reflect."
