‘Fabregas Is The Victim Of A Witch Hunt’ – Arsene Wenger

“F**k you, you f**king f**k-faced f**ker!”

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has claimed that his captain, Cesc Fabregas, has been made the subject of a witch hunt over the ‘unrepeatable comments’ he may or may not have made to the match officials at half-time during the Gunners’ 2-1 win over Everton at the Emirates on Tuesday evening.

Quite the nasty little bugger when he wants to be, is our Cesc.

Any road up, speaking at a media conference – when asked if he though Fabregas had been subjected to a ‘witch hunt’, Wenger replied:

“Yes. We are long enough in the job to know that somebody picks on you for a while, and you are in the heat of the moment but, for me, what is most important is that the player himself behaves well.

“When Cesc is on the pitch, he tries to play football – I cannot say everybody who plays against him tries to do that.

“For example, some people reproach him for not exchanging shirts with a player after the game – but I hope he will not exchange shirts with players who try to kick him for 90 minutes and them come to say ‘please can I get your shirt’ – I think that is a normal and natural reaction.”

Wenger continued, berating his Everton counterpart David Moyes (who very much didn’t get sacked yesterday) for flagging up Fabregas’ conduct during his post-match interview:

“I believe that it is wrong for Moyes to come out on what he pretends to have heard in the tunnel. If I come out with what I have heard in the tunnel is the last 10 years, you would be amazed.

“I think there is a rule in our job to never come out with what is said in the heat of the moment. That usually is respected by everybody.

“Cesc has not been charged, so this story for me is over.”

The Frenchman also confirmed that ‘keeper Lukasz Fabianksi will fly to Germany for surgery on his dislocated shoulder today, thus bringing a premature end to his season.

    What did or didn’t he say?

  2. Chris says:

    The Sun reckon Cesc asked the ref how much Everton paid him before calling him a ‘cheat’ – other than that, it’s still (and will probably remain) unconfirmed.

  3. C says:

    Ah, The Sun. Case closed. Nothing happened.

  4. syndex says:

    yes the goal was off side but how bad does an arsenal play act to get sent off at the emerates apparently calling the ref bent won’t do it so who here paid the ref off ?

    @ Syndex – what did any Arsenal player do to get himself sent off?

    A fuss is only being made because Cesc aint English.

    We have to watch John Terry, Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand etc scream obscenities into the refs face anytime a freekick doesnt go their way week in, week out, but there doesnt seem to be masses of press coverage about it. Instead, the Sun will have you believe this is merely a show of passion blah blah blah….

    Absoulte bollocks from the media yet again. As for Moyes, why doesnt he stick to answering questions about his teams poor form instead of making up breeze about what apparently happened in the tunnel at half time.

    Rant over.

    I guess the cocksucker referee didn’t offend at all

  7. Chris says:

    Agree with Anon – it does seem to reek of xenophobia. I wonder if he’s the focus for his “bad behavior” because he’s not blokey enough. Maybe if he were out with the prossies more or arranging Caligula parties he could get away with being “quite the nasty little bugger”.

  8. goonerdan says:

    How can Moyes say he doesn’t even want to repeat what Cesc apparently said, he’s scottish so swearing was in his vocab since 6, and has seen his team have shit performances this seasonso I wonder what’s said in the changing room at half time – definately gonna be swearing to the highest amount, so what the fuck is that cunt on about?

  9. Brett says:

    Nobody seemed to care when Carrick full on shoved the ref during the 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford earlier in the year. When Gary Neville has a go at the ref, they chalk it up to passion and his “bristling attidute.” Typical Xenophobia, we saw this with Eduardo and should no longer be surprised.

    The English media might be the most caustic, cheap and detrimental thing to the sport in the country. I’d rather deal with skinheads, frankly. At least they don’t pretend to be something they’re not.

    The English media just may be the most caustic, cheap, and detrimental thing to the sport in this country. I’d rather deal with skinheads, frankly. At lease they don’t pretend to be something they’re not.

  12. Greg says:

    If that referee didnt f@ck it up completely in the first place, Cesc wouldn’t have to (verbally) smack him around. Serves Mason right, he had it coming and he should be better at his job. Also he should bake Cesc a cake, have dinner on the table at 6 pm, and know his place.

    Rooney and Terry do this every match, and it is called “passion”. It works too, Man U especially get every decision because the referees are afraid of them. Cesc just saw that this technique worked, and adjusted accordingly.

    fabregas is a fucking maricon and should be kicked out of the premierleague! fabregas YOU LITTLE FUCKING ARSEHOLE, YOU SHIT KICKING HORSEMANURE SNIFFING MOTHER FUCKER YOU!
