Fabregas fears broken leg

2010-04-01 09:13

London - Cesc Fabregas will have tests on Thursday to determine the extent of a leg injury that he believes could keep him out of the Soccer World Cup.

Fabregas suffered the injury in winning the penalty that he converted to salvage a 2-2 draw for Arsenal against Barcelona in the Champions League on Wednesday.

He had been a doubt before the game with severe bruising and a strained tendon in his knee, and seemed to have aggravated the injury in taking the penalty.

But he later revealed he fear a new problem, caused by the way his leg became tangled with those of Carles Puyol.

"I am not good," he said Fabregas. "We have to wait, but I hope I can wear the Arsenal shirt again this season.

"I fear the worst, which is that I have broken something.

"I do not think it is going to be good news, but still I hope there will be.

"When I took the penalty, I was quite strong, but after when I went to get the ball, I could not walk any more.

"It is the fibula. I think I put my leg between Puyol's when I was fouled, and kicked it."

    Brilliant!! Considering the fact that it wasn't a penalty to start with. I hope he doesn't make the World Cup, Karma is a bitch

    Got what he deserved! The cheat kicked Puyol and then went down claiming he had been fouled. Got the penalty then harrased the referee to send Puyol off. Justice is always sweet!

    NSE You are unbelievable. If you are a soccer supporter you would never wish a top player a broken leg under any circumstances no matter what the circumstances or who you support!!

  • @NSE - 2010-04-01 09:58

    You are right Mr NSE. Karma is a bitch, and it is starting to strike back at barcelona for all their robbed matches, penalties and fouls!!! I was holding thumbs Sol Campbel would brake that argentinians legs but the idiot got off easy this time

    Fouled when? when you kicked Puyol....Justice

    NSE, I hope some1 breaks your face for that comment. Puyol prevented a clear goal-scoring oppotunity. We wish our soldier Cesc a speedy recovery.

    Not a penalty?! Are you people delusional or were you watching a different game? Fabregas is one of the top players in the world, and I hope he hasn't injured himself too badly. Arsenal will miss him for the next game, that's for sure...

    Seems to me the Rules of football are very different to what is written on the fifa website , That was clear penalty , Maybe i was watching a different game to the rest of you but that was not the first penalty we should have had in the game but any way we got the penalty and we showed exactly the fighting power we have , shame poor barca they must be wishing that arsenal were as easy to push over as Chelskie . ( its a discrace a discrace , hahahahahaha poor drogba ! Fabregas the fantastic !

  • kyle - 2010-04-01 11:34

    Ja, some ppl don't even know the uefa rules. Go read it and then come back and say it wasn't a penalty. Fabregassssss

  • Alonso - 2010-04-01 11:42

    Fabric-ass, a Barca reject, couldn't compete with Messi, Iniesta, Xavi, etc, so he ran away to try and shine in an average team, like Arse-nal, Also, fits in with a similar name like the rest.

  • Stormer - 2010-04-01 12:02

    Remember this is soccer, not rugby! He is faking, just like he did with the penalty. He will be fine, and back on the pitch in no time.

    @ all Arsenal supporters, who were saying it's a good thing Rooney's hurt, what are you saying now after your precious Fabregas got hurt lastnight? . @NSE & similar idiots like him, you're all a bunch of low life sh!ts. Don't wish harm on anyone else cos it'll come back & bite you in the ass. I hope they both have a speedy recovery. Go United

    Fabregas and Rooney are class acts - the a$#^holes on this site wishing bad luck on them should grow up - because without players of this calibre - the beautiful game will be VERY boring. Catch a wake up you imbecile dooses and acknowledge great talent when you see it - regardless who you support !!

  • Domdel - 2010-04-01 14:25

    You are all like a bunch of bitchy teenage girls. Why not wish that all injured players recover quickly from their injuries because then we will have the best playing the best in the SWC come June. Why don't you all just grow up!!!!

    Good grief, and here I was trying to get into watching football seeing as the world cup is coming, but with the comments on this page I am reminded why I never liked Football. Most supporters are hooligans! Where have you ever heard someone being happy that a top player has possibly broken a leg??!! Plus the fact that there is still a possibility that he faked it just to get a penalty. I will go back to watching rugby - a game with REAL men.
