CHELSEA HAVE SACKED a steward for branding midfielder Cesc Fabregas a “snake” after a video of the incident emerged on Friday.

The club have acted to remove the employee who spoke out to the Spanish midfielder as he walked past him following a match at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season.

Footage shows the 28-year-old walking inside the stadium wearing a Chelsea tracksuit and carrying a suitcase when he is called a “snake” and told “you’re Arsenal” by the steward.

The same voice than asks “what happened to you?”

Fabregas will make another return to the Emirates Stadium when Chelsea face Arsenal on Sunday. The Spaniard made 303 appearances for the Gunners before his sale to Barcelona and eventual move to the Blues.
