The Spaniard took the microphone during Chelsea’s open-top bus parade on Monday, before starting the ‘Fabregas is magic’ song and prompting the fans to finish it off.
If you’re unfamiliar with the chant in question, it goes: "Fabregas is magic, he wears a magic hat, he could have signed for Arsenal, but he said no f*ck that.”
It should be noted that the Chelsea fans were initially chanting the song in question at him, so he probably felt obliged to give them a rendition of his own.
But he must have been aware that, by chanting the song, relations between himself and the Arsenal supporters would only deteriorate further. Everything is filmed and uploaded to the internet these days, and several Arsenal fans on Twitter have already spoken of their disappointment.
Fabregas did not reject Arsenal
The song is a little inaccurate, though. Fabregas did not snub Arsenal; instead it was Arsene Wenger who rejected the opportunity to re-sign him after he decided to leave Barcelona last summer.
That Wenger snubbed the chance to re-sign the World Cup winner came as a surprise, but the French coach justified his decision by saying he already possessed top players - such as Mesut Ozil - who play in the same position as Fabregas.
Fabregas has not looked back since
Perhaps feeling a little put out by the fact Wenger did not want him back, Fabregas surprisingly accepted Jose Mourinho’s offer to join Chelsea. He has not looked back since.
Fabregas spent eight years at Arsenal and picked up one trophy - the FA Cup in 2005.
But he’s already managed to double that tally as a Chelsea player in his very first season, winning both the Capital One Cup and, most importantly, the Premier League title.
The 28-year-old has been excellent throughout his debut campaign at Stamford Bridge, scoring three goals and providing a magnificent 18 assists in 33 Premier League appearances.
This has led many Arsenal fans to question whether Wenger was right to reject Fabregas last summer.
