Arteta Says Don’t Compare Him To Cesc

by on December 17, 2011

Mikel Arteta recently spoke to Goal.Com where the midfielder mentioned people shouldn’t compare him to Fàbregas because they have different styles on the pitch.

People were always going to compare Arteta with Fabregas both are midfielders and both are Spanish as well. Fàbregas left Arsenal in the summer to join his former club Barcelona and Arteta signed for the Gunners from Premiership side Everton. Arteta plays as one of the two deeper center midfielders alongside Alex Song for Arsenal in this 4-2-3-1/4-3-3 formation. Where as last season Fàbregas played in the advanced attacking midfield role, just behind the striker. But Welsh captain Aaron Ramsey has been playing in Fàbregas’s former position for the Gunners this season.

The Spanish midfielder on people comparing him to former Arsenal captain Cesc Fàbregas.

“When I arrived everyone was asking me about Cesc Fabregas and they compared me to him.”

“If at the end of the season nobody asks me about him it will be because I have done well, but each of us has his own style on the pitch.”
