Cesc Fabregas has admitted he is frustrated at being left on the bench in Spain’s World Cup campaign.

Arsenal captain Fabregas was overlooked again as Spain beat Portugal to march into the World Cup quarter finals.

Fabregas is facing the frustration again in Saturday’s quarter final with Paraguay as Xavi and Andres Iniesta are guaranteed midfield starting places ahead of him.

Fabregas said: “I always want to play. I’m not used to sitting on the bench and I want to be playing at this World Cup.

“I’m always competitive at everything – even on the PlayStation. But that’s my desire to win and I have that even in training.

“I’ve never been a player happy to settle for what I have, I always want more. I respect the coach’s decision.

“I know to be in midfield is going to be difficult because we have a lot of good players but I will never give up.

“I’ve won a lot of caps but if I’ve not played three quarters of the game then it’s not so valuable to me.

“I still don’t think my best time for Spain has arrived and I still must carry on working to improve.”

Fabregas has also insisted that he is focused on the World Cup and will not necessarily leave Arsenal this summer despite Barcelona’s interest.

Barcelona’s new president Sandro Rosell is expected to come back with a new offer for Fabregas once his term of office begins today.

Former president Joan Laporta had a £30m bid for Fabregas turned down and the Arsenal captain has told Arsene Wenger face-to-face that he wants to join Barcelona.

But Fabregas said: “I haven’t said that I will definitely leave Arsenal. Everything is possible. Now I have my head and my focus on the World Cup.

“I am very pride to be captain of Arsenal and I love the club and have respect for them. It gave me such pride to be made captain.”
