Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola admits the arrival of former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas has lifted the spirit inside the squad.

Cesc has returned to Barca after playing with the likes of Gerard Pique and Lionel Messi as a junior.

"There's always been a good atmosphere and the players have always got on together fantastically." However, he confirmed that this year it's even better: "There are people here who apart from getting on together, are very close friends. Their behaviour is excellent."
