Dutch coach Ronaldo Koeman is convinced that Cesc Fabregas is one of the best players in the world. His superb performance in the 4-1 victory over AZ Alkmaar proves him right.
The popular Cesc netted twice to virtually assure Arsenal a place in the knockout stages and AZ boss Koeman was impressed.
Koeman kowns that Cesc was the main reason for the result. "He is a fantastic player. Fabregas was involved in nearly everything - but they have many footballers who really don't need many chances to score."
Koeman also talked about Arsenal chances in the future: "They are a fantastic team with lots of quality and make many chances, but they are also a very young team and they maybe lack the experience that say Chelsea and Barcelona have when it comes to the latter stages. But that does not mean they can't go a long way in the competition because in knockout it's very close and it's just two games. To me, they are serious candidates."
