Cesc Fabregas vows to improve after scoring on full Barcelona debut
Tuesday 23 August 2011
Cesc Fabregas has vowed there is more to come from him after scoring on his first start for Barcelona.
The midfielder completed his Catalonian homecoming from Arsenal last week and, after a substitute appearance in the Supercopa win over Real Madrid, started his first game last night. He scored the opening goal in the 5-0 Gamper Trophy win over Napoli, and was pleased to have got off the mark.
"I am very happy to have scored my first goal in a Barcelona shirt," he told the media after the game.
"This is a great experience and I hope to enjoy the moment.
"All my team-mates make things easy for me.
"I am playing in a different role compared to what I was used to at Arsenal. But this is a new experience, and things will get better."
