Former Arsenal captain, Cesc Fabregas, says he made Nigerian Nwankwo Kanu angry during their time at the London club.

The Spanish midfielder, now with Monaco, joined the Gunners as a teenager in 2003 from Barcelona and was highly rated by manager Arsene Wenger, but largely unknown to the more established Arsenal stars.

The 33-year-old revealed that while trying to impress the manager and his teammates in his first training at the club, he tackled Kanu, which made the Nigerian unhappy.

Both players featured for the Gunners for one season before Kanu left for Portsmouth in 2004, after spending five years at the club.

Cesc Fabregas went on to become a club legend at the North London side, scoring 57 goals and providing 92 assists in 304 appearances.
