Banter! Arsenal’s Flamini tags Chelsea’s Cesc Fabregas in Community Shield Instagram picture
- August 10, 2014
For a brief period back in the 2007/08 season, Mathieu Flamini and Cesc Fabregas enjoyed one of the best midfield partnerships in the Premier League.
It was broken up when Flamini left for AC Milan at the end of that season, and Fabregas headed back to Barcelona in 2011.
But with Flamini rejoining the Gunners last January, there was a chance that they could reignite their partnership had Cesc returned to Arsenal this summer, but for various reasons, he ended up at Chelsea.
Flamini could be a little bitter about that, or they could still be close friends; whatever the case may be, he tagged Fabregas in his Instagram picture of himself and Rosicky holding the Community Shield aloft today.
