ARSENAL midfielder Cesc Fabregas believes that there are a lot of similarities between the Gunners and the Spanish national side and has revealed he enjoys playing in both systems.

Fabregas has played 32 times for his country and the 21-year-old believes that the style of football for both Spain and Arsenal is quite similar.

"The Spanish side has very, very good players," Fabregas said "I enjoy playing with them and there are definitely comparisons with Arsenal, although it’s a bit quicker with my club.

"The emphasis with Spain is maybe more on keeping the ball while at Arsenal we’re committed to playing on the counter and looking for attacking solutions all the time. The players are similar as they’re technically good and very creative."

Fabregas also revealed he has no hard feeling towards former coach Luis Aragones - after Fabregas was left mainly on the bench during the sides victorious Euro 2008 camapign.

"Good players can always play together if they want to and are intelligent," he said. "I think that the coach was actually very intelligent himself in this case; he knew that Xavi and I are a bit different. Xavi is very good at keeping the ball, while every time we were losing or drawing he’d send me on because I can play a bit quicker, a bit longer."

"I respect Xavi a lot and [Luis] Aragones too - he made the right decisions at the right moments and what it comes down to is that we are a team."
