Chelsea star Cesc Fabregas was all smiles as he posed for a picture with Arsenal legend Bob Wilson on Tuesday afternoon at the Stars on Canvas event, a charity auction in aid of the former goalkeeper’s Willow Foundation.
Fabregas, 27, made 303 total appearances for Arsenal from 2003 to 2011, recording 98 assists and 57 goals, before returning to childhood club Barcelona in a £25 million deal.
After three underwhelming seasons with the Catalan giants, however, the ex-Gunners captain returned to England in June to join London rivals Chelsea for £30 million, much to the chagrin of fans at the Emirates Stadium.
Since proving a fantastic addition to Jose Mourinho’s side, Wilson himself is no doubt disappointed that manager Arsene Wenger opted against re-signing the Spanish midfielder this summer, considering his deep-running connections to the club.
The former Scotland shot-stopper also made over 300 appearances in north London between 1963 and 1974, before going on to serve as the team’s goalkeeping coach for over 28 years, tutoring the likes of Pat Jennings, John Lukic and David Seaman, respectively, during that period.
