A Son of the System

They tried to hide Cesc Fábregas, did his hometown youth side, so Barca’s scouts wouldn’t see him — because they knew. For all Thierry Henry’s pain at playing Arsenal, Fábregas tonight goes to war (pending injury) against més que un club — it’s the team that sent a taxi 55km each way every day to pick him up for training at age 10, and the kids named Piqué and Messi that beat him at table tennis and Playstation and mocked his bad taste in music. And that he defended with his fists mid-pitch. (Sid Lowe/The Guardian)
