“It is with great sadness that the time has come for me to hang up my playing boots,” he said.

He went on to reminisce about the unforgettable experiences and triumphs he achieved throughout his career: “From lifting the World Cup, the Euros, to winning everything in England and Spain and nearly all the European trophies, it has been a journey that I’ll never forget.”

Fabregas also acknowledged the commitment and hard work that his career demanded, and thanked the sport that had been such a significant part of his life.

“After 20 incredible years full of sacrifice, dedication, and joy, it’s time to say thank you and goodbye to the beautiful game,” he added.

As Fabregas bids farewell to an exceptional career, he leaves behind a legacy as one of the great midfield maestros in football history.

His vision, creativity, and leadership on the field were admired by fans and fellow professionals alike, and his contributions to the clubs he represented, as well as the Spanish national team, will be remembered for years to come.
