AZ Alkmaar coach Ronald Koeman admits he's a big fan of Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas.

Cesc was again outstanding in Arsenal's 4-1 Champions League win over AZ last night.

Koeman, who like Cesc is a former Barcelona player, said: "He is one of the best midfielders in the world.

"He has so many qualities, he prepares attacks for the team and he scores. He is a fabulous player."
