Arteta: I would be mad if I believed I could replace Cesc at Arsenal

Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta says he didn't arrive to replace Cesc Fabregas.

Arteta joined the Gunners from Everton just days after Cesc left for Barcelona.

But he told AS: "I'm not here to replace Cesc. If I suggested that, I will go wrong. I have been three weeks here and he spent seven years. I have a personality that is probably different from his.

"I am mad if I am going to try to be equal to or better than him. I must find my way, my style."
