In the wake of last Saturday's defeat against West Ham, Cesc Fabregas' old man has spoken out about the incident that saw Cesc & Teddy Sherringham stand toe to toe.
Sherringham was the cause of the incident after he goaded Fabregas in a aggresive manner. It escolated from there.
Fabregas' father believes Sherringham is old enough to know better but also thinks the pair would be best left unpunished as these things happen in the heat of the game.
'I'm 39 so Sheringham is older than I am. So he's old enough to be Cesc's father!' Said Fabregas Snr.
'Personally, I saw the first aggression come from Sheringham and even when you want to stay calm there are times when you react.'
'It's important to show your character but you always have to keep it under control.'
'I can say if there are moments when Cesc gets heated it comes from my crazy character. I can be 'loco'.'
'I've told my son if he doesn't take after me, then I'll be happy. He has to be cool because there were times when I played regional football that I forgot about the match and went looking for trouble.'
'I'm happy that Cesc defends his team and his coach and that they all stick together because I think the fight was sparked by an injustice. It's super-important to show your character.'
'What occurred between them is something that happens in the heat of the moment. But when it's over, you shake hands. Football is not just about playing well, you also have to be able to fight. Sometimes when I see Arsenal's games, the opposition rely just on brute force.'
'I prefer watching Arsenal's football but they have to be able to match their opponents in the physical contest as well. If a team wins because of brute force, you have to take your hat off to them. But you have to fight for your honour.'
In all fairness, while Cesc is probably cringing about his dad making comments in the press, Mr. Fabregas seems to know exactly what he is talking about.
And as for Sherringhm, he always has been a bully and an Arsenal hating scum bag. The sooner he retires the better.
