Fabregas urges Barcelona to focus

SoccerNews in La Liga 11 Oct 2012


Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has spoken of the importance of building an early advantage over Real Madrid in the battle for La Liga.

Tito Vilanova’s men have taken 19 points from their first seven league games and sit joint top with Atletico Madrid.

Barca are a staggering eight points clear of the reigning La Liga champions – something Fabregas is desperate to maintain.

“If somebody had offered us this advantage at the start of the season then we would have signed there and then,” he told TV3.

“It’s great, and now we have to continue with the same mentality.”

Fabregas had been dropped by Vilanova after a string of inconsistent performances at the beginning of the season, but the playmaker insists he is not fazed by criticism.

“You always need to be as calm as possible, be hardworking and disciplined, and the results will come,” he said.

The former Arsenal man also had kind words for his team-mate Eric Abidal, who has returned to training after recovering from his liver transplant in April.

“It is spectacular for a person to return after what he has been through,” Fabregas said.

“If I had something like that, I would be down for a long time but he takes it with normality, with patience and he is so positive that it is worthy of admiration.”

I believe that barcelona will win the title despite Atletico madrid effort,less forget about real madrid they can’t make it this season, eight point clear is not an easy task. Let them take heart and wait for another season.

barcelona, we are going to lift dis trophy. but i dont simply understand why madrid have to score first in all the classico before we egualise. pls this must come to a pause. any way barca and messi(de only one..)no size……the trophy has been lifted in advance hurrrraaaayyyy…!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Lets be realistic here, 7 games played is just too early to say that Barca have won the league. Let’s see how things stand after 20 games, then we can start talking.

My hope is that Barca keep remain on top and win La Liga this season. Then hopefully next season Valencia, Atletico or Malaga can win so that we have a different champion for a change.

Its so boring, its always Barca or Real.

why are u guys dreaming or why are u writing Real Madrid off; its time to pay barca in their own coin, and only Madrid can do it effectively. for now barca and the cup are seperated.
