Football Association’s director of football development and former England international, Sir Trevor Brooking says that English Youngsters could learn from the mental strength of Fabregas. He says in this article in Daily Mail :
I am sure Cesc coming through so well is because he has benefited from being around someone like Arsene Wenger.
Some coaches probably would not have thrown him in at 16 or 17, but he felt Cesc had that mental strength to deal with everything.
I was brought up that when you get the ball, your first thought is ‘can I play it forwards?’ Everybody gets obsessed with playing the square pass, but the early ball forwards has to be the one, and Fabregas looks for that one all the time.
He is really confident about playing it between tight areas, and that is what we have to encourage.
And in a well written article in ESPN Soccernet, read about how Wenger finds potential and moulds them in the way he sees them develop.
