LONDON - Skipper Cesc Fabregas will today urge Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger to change his mind and give him a chance to play in Sunday’s Carling Cup final.
Fabregas limped out of Wednesday’s 1-0 win over Stoke but has set his heart on helping end Arsenal’s six-year wait for a major trophy and is ready to sit on the bench if needed.
The Arsenal skipper has refused to give up despite being ruled out by his boss last night.
Determined Fabregas is meeting Wenger this morning before having a second scan on the hamstring strain that could rule him out of the clash with Birmingham, The Sun reports.
An Arsenal insider revealed: “Cesc wants to play so badly. He had a scan which showed only a strain, not a tear. He is having another one on Friday and will have more treatment.
“He is the captain and wants to lead his team out so badly. He respects the manager’s views but is desperate to be involved.” (ANI)
