Cesc Fabregas has broken his silence regarding the Great Britain's decision to leave the European Union and has branded it as a mistake.
The 29-year-old Spanish international has spent a large part of his career in London, first with Arsenal and now Chelsea.
Brexit has led to financial uncertainty as well as claimed the scalp of Prime Minister David Cameron with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn facing a no confidence vote.
And Fabregas believes that the British people have made a mistake to vote for Brexit.
Fabregas is quoted as saying: "It's a very disappointing decision and I think very negative for many people.
"Personally, I see it as a mistake. I didn't expect it. I went to bed optimistic and woke up to this news.
"I think it's damaging for the Premier League. It'll be harder to sign players, the salaries will change if the pound gets close to the euro.
"It's a decision that will create many complications not just in football, but the daily lives and future of all people."
