Aku merindu

Kerinduanku kepada heningmu
Membuatku terbawa ke padang-padang
dan semak seakan tak berpenghuni itu
Kota-kotamu dan temboknya bagaikan mati
Tapi ada kehidupan di sana
Nyata, tanpa pergolakan

Francesc Fabregas i Soler: Size doesn’t matter

For Francesc Fabregas i Soler, or “Cesc” as he prefers to be known, size doesn’t matter. Instead, commitment to and enjoyment of the game of soccer is the crucial factor for greatness.

“I think the best player in the world … is Lionel Messi,” the 1.75-meter-tall S
paniard said to his former teammates at FC Barcelona’s youth academy when Indonesian children asked him a question during a visit to London recently.

“So, sometimes you just have to believe in yourself and don’t think that just because you are too big or too small, or physically not strong enough. You can always improve, and if you train hard and practice in a positive way, you can always try to achieve your targets,” he told The Jakarta Post.

The Spanish midfielder is known as a captain that lets nobody down. His work ethic, vision and canny knack for making the right decision when in possession, Cesc slotted in seamlessly with Arsenal’s fluent style of play.

When Fabregas became a goal keeper

Not very often does Arsenal captain and midfielder Cesc Fabregas wants to be goal keeper. Perhaps even if he is asked by Arsene Wenger. But this time the Spaniard willingly offered himself to be one.

He did it recently for a bunch of nine children from Indonesia who met him at a soccer center in London.
