This is a really cute Cesc interview where he talks about Carla a lot..
Congratulations on becoming the captain of Arsenal. Are you enjoying bossing the others?
No, I don’t boss anybody! In England, captain is a very big thing. Everybody looks at him to be always at the top, so it’s a huge responsibility.
You came to England from Spain when you were just 16. Was it hard?
It was difficult for the first five months or so, but I was training with the first team every now and then, which made it all worth it.
Do you get homesick?
I miss my family, but I’m quite independent. I moved out of home at 15, moved to England at 16. It’s difficult when I go back home to Barcelona because I’m being told what to do.
Was British culture a bit of a shock?
Yes. In Spain, normally you eat at 10pm, at 12.30am you go to a pub, at 3am you go to the disco. Here, at 7pm they are either ready for bed or on the floor somewhere.
