Fabregas: Barcelona can win treble

The Spain international, who says he is feeling stronger than ever, is aware that the Blaugrana have to improve but remains confident that they will rack up the trophies
Cesc Fabregas is in no doubt that Barcelona have what it takes to win the treble this season.

The Catalans currently sit second in La Liga, trailing Real Madrid by a solitary point, while they are close to reaching the quarter-finals of the Champions League after a 2-0 first-leg win over Manchester City and have made it to the final of the Copa del Rey, too.

Fabregas has acknowledged that Barca still have room for improvement, but he's confident a successful season is on the cards.

"We have to improve, but it’s all still in our hands. We have 19 games ahead of us in the league, Champions League and cup, and if we win them all, then this will be a great season," the midfielder told Barca TV.

"We have to pull our socks up and show that we are hungrier than anyone else to win the league title. If we win every game we have left, we’ll be champions.

"I like to think that we’ll be there to the end in every competition. We have to treat these games like 19 finals."

Fabregas then went on to stress that he's feeling in great shape physically and mentally and is grateful to head coach Gerardo Martino for the faith shown in him.

"I am feeling fine. This season I have been physically and mentally stronger than ever," the former Arsenal captain enthused.

"I feel important to the team and that builds my confidence. I’m very grateful to Tata, he’s giving me tremendous confidence. I always try to give it my very best.

"I am understanding all of the other players much better too."
