Arsenal old boy Cesc Fabregas confirms Man United pizzagate legend

Arsenal & Chelsea’s Cesc Fabregas

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas burst onto the scene as a 16-year-old wonderkid under Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.

Fabregas only won two trophies as a teenager at Arsenal – The Community Shield and the FA Cup.

Arsenal then reluctantly sold the Spain midfielder back to his boyhood club for £30million in June 2011. But Arsene Wenger secured a first option should Fabregas come back onto the market.

That happened in 2014, when Cesc eventually ended up joining Chelsea.

Sir Alex Ferguson & Man United

Who can forget the “Battle of the Buffet” between Man United and Arsenal in 2004?

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was slapped around the face by a slice of pizza following a war of words with Arsene Wenger.

That happened after the French boss had accused Ruud van Nistelrooy of cheating in a 2-0 win for the Red Devils.

Rumours have always been that Cesc Fabregas was the Arsenal player responsible for hitting Fergie with the pizza slice.

And this week, on A League Of Their Own, the Chelsea star has confirmed the rumours are true.

Pizzagate legend confirmed

Chelsea’s Fabregas has finally told his side of the story this week, with the Daily Mail publishing the quotes before the show airs.

Directly asked whether he threw the pizza, Cesc said “yes!” He then added:

Martin Keown is a liar because I saw him in front of me just, like, punching people so he didn’t see anything. 

All of a sudden, I heard noises and I thought what’s happening? So I go out with my slice of pizza and I saw Sol Campbell, Rio Ferdinand, Martin Keown… everyone pushing each other.

I was like I want to get in but I don’t know how to and I threw… peeew… just threw it. Once I saw it was hitting, like, who it was hitting, which I didn’t mean…

I apologise Sir Alex, really didn’t mean to do that.
