Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas revealed that he is unaffected by the violent reactions elicited by Arsenal fans following his recent move to Stamford Bridge.
The Spanish international was predicted to reunite with Arsene Wenger when his situation in Barcelona became uncertain due to a change in squad management.
“I'm mature enough for that [reaction] not to hurt.” - Cesc Fabregas on Arsenal fans' violent reactions
"I'm mature enough for that [reaction] not to hurt," said the 27-year-old La Masia Alumnus.
"I have explained it well."
"I've always been very loyal and grateful to Arsenal."
"There was a first option they could exercise - I talked with Arsene Wenger and he told me that the area was covered with Mesut Ozil - but there is always fans who want to cause trouble."
Several fans expressed their anger through social media, posting burnt "Fabregas" shirt, while others are also contemplating on following the lead.
