Return to Barcelona difficult: Fabregas

London, March 22 (IANS) English football champions Chelsea’s midfielder Cesc Fabregas says it would be very difficult for him to play for his former club Spanish champions FC Barcelona again.

Asked how difficult it would be for him to make a return to the Catalan side, the Spanish international said, “Difficult, very difficult,” reported goal.com.

He played for the Spanish and European champions for three years from 2011 to 2014.

He said he “misses” Barcelona but joked that the same feeling might not be reciprocated from the Catalan giants.

The Spanish heavyweights have won five trophies out of six since Fabregas moved to Chelsea.

The 28-year-old also believes Leicester City will hold off the challenges of Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal to win the English Premier League in the ongoing season. Leicester are five points above nearest rivals Tottenham in the league table.

“There are still plenty of points to play for, but, for me, they (Leicester) are the big favourites now,” he added.

“Tottenham and Arsenal would have to win all their games (to challenge them).”
