Just on the heels of Cristiano Ronaldo shocking his fans with his "I'm sad" in Real Madrid comment, Cesc Fabregas of Barcelona has sent out another shocker by admitting that he is frustrated over not playing full game.
Barcelona's Fabregas celebrates after he scored against Valencia during their Spanish first division soccer match in Valencia.
Fabregas, who joined Barcelona from Arsenal last summer for £30million, seems to be not happy being substituted often, though he features in almost all the games. He was sunstituted in Sunday's game against Valencia too.
"Everybody likes to play every minute of the season. I've always said that I play for the best team in the world, but I came here to compete, to learn and enjoy, not to sit wracking my brains.
The manager knows what I can offer. But across the three positions that I can play, I am competing with the three best players in the world," Fabregas told Radio Marca.
He went on to say that he will leave the club only when he is asked to. "I'm delighted to be a part of this team but when a coach tells me I have to go, I'll go. But I will not make it easy for him to do so, by any means. I will keep going, looking forward to the time that things change. I came here to see out my career," he added.
Cristiano Ronaldo recently showed his unhappiness on his club Real Madrid by not celebrating his two goals against Granada on Sunday, but Fabregas has a different take on this.
"There's no such thing as a great substitute in the world of football. I couldn't tell you what makes a great substitute. I always wish my team-mates well and put a happy face on. If I have to take my unhappy face home then so be it, but I would never let my team-mates or manager see it," Fabregas told Radio Marca.
