Cesc Fabregas left Arsenal FC as they won't win trophies 'in the near future'

Cesc Fabregas has claimed it is "hard to see" Arsenal winning the Premier League or Champions League "in the near future."

The 24-year-old, who left the Emirates last month to return to boyhood club Barcelona in a £35million deal, had gone six years without winning a trophy in north London.

And although the Spain international insists he will always follow the Gunners, he has admitted that uncertainly over the club's short-term plans were a factor in his decision to move to Spain.

He told Sport magazine: "I want to be in a club that is able to win the big titles year after year and I don't see that kind of future for Arsenal.

"I still have many feelings for Arsenal, but I fear that they won't be able to push the other big clubs in England away.

"If you look at the team this season I can't see them finishing in front of teams like Manchester United or [Manchester] City, or Chelsea. There's just too big a difference between the squads.

"I respect that Arsenal don't have the same financial opportunities as the others, but it was part of my decision to leave that I find it hard to see Arsenal winning the Premier League or Champions League in the near future."

He added: "I hope they will replace me and the others that have left with some quality players and maybe they can take Arsenal back to their level as champions."
