Cesc and Alexis delight supporters clubs

Jordi Clos

The appearance of the two new additions to the football squad was one of the highlights of the Supporters Clubs congress. “We hope to win lots more title and that you’ll be able to continue enjoying yourselves” said Cesc.

The supporters clubs were able to greet Cesc Fàbregas and Alexis Sánchez in person as they appeared in the Palau de Congressos along with the Liga and Champions League trophies won last season, with the Barça anthem playing in the background.

Growing family

President Sandro Rosell presented them as “two new members of our family,” before saying that “the Chilean ambassador said that his country now supports Barça thanks to Alexis. We have signed both a great footballer and a great person”. On Cesc, he said “he has returned to his family. He is one of us, he grew up here. He left, but has returned with a lot of desire.” He also spoke about the financial efforts that went into securing the two players.

Grateful and excited

We thank the people that made this possible”. As the supporters clubs applauded, the midfielder said “we started very well with the win against Madrid in the Supercup and we hope there will be many more titles and that you continue to enjoy yourselves”.

Cesc’s words went down a storm with the supporters clubs, who welcomed the players with a huge ovation.
