Cesc Fabregas says he has not experienced a single negative reaction from Arsenal supporters despite signalling his desire to leave the club and join Barcelona during the summer.
Fabregas risked alienating Arsenal fans when telling Arsene Wenger he wished to join Barca prior to the World Cup finals, but the Gunners' skipper refused to go as far as submitting a written transfer request or making his dissatisfaction clear through the media.
He has now thanked Arsenal supporters for understanding the situation he found himself in and not reacting adversely to the transfer saga.
When asked if he had faced a backlash from Arsenal fans, Fabregas told The Sun: "No, not at all. I was honest about it all at the time and I think they understood the situation perfectly, 100%.
