The former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas has said that he is extremely happy with his status within the Spanish national team. The 25-year-old midfielder recently completed his move to Barcelona for £ 35 million. His first season at the Catalan club may not have been a huge success, but this season they have started in the most spectacular fashion under the new manager Tito Vilanova. This has consequently lead to an improved form for Cesc Fabregas, who has been a first-team regular for the Spanish national team for a consistent basis. This has led to the Spaniard said that he is extremely happy with his contributions and value within the national team.

The Spanish national team is undoubtedly the best in the world right now after having lifted the FIFA World Cup once and the European championship trophy two times. Yet, Cesc Fabregas has said that he is still hungry for more success and cannot wait to try had the opportunity to retain the World Cup in the 2014 edition. Cesc Fabregas recently played in his 73rd international match in the 4-0 win over Belarus. Spain have had a strong start to the World Cup qualifying campaign and are one of the favourites to win the World Cup.

“I’m actually a bit annoyed [with the number of international appearances], because if I hadn’t been injured it could have been more. But I’m happy. I feel valued within the team. We are an attacking team and we know that what we have to do is play well and look for space and depth. We need to carry on doing that. We’re going well, but we know we’re playing our main rivals in the group [France] next and that they have a great team,” said Cesc Fabregas ahead of the friendly matches next week.
