Manager stands by decision to not take up buy-back clause.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has insisted that he stands by his decision not to exercise the buy-back clause installed in Cesc Fabregas’ contract when he left Barcelona this summer, the Daily Mirror reports.
Fabregas signed for Chelsea for £27million in the summer, where he has proven to be one of the signings of the season in the Premier League.
Wenger had the chance to bring the former fan favourite back to the club this summer, but rejected the chance claiming that it was not the right decision for him to make.
“I don’t regret not taking Cesc because we already had a lot of creative players in our midfield,” he said.
“Chelsea will also have a difficult period [in the season]. Our schedule was extremely difficult and I have the belief that we can close the gap to them.”
