WATCH: Fabregas sees red for horror challenge on Liverpool defender

Cesc Fabregas is clearly a man who doesn’t understand simple phrases such as ‘take it easy’, ‘it’s just a pre-season friendly’ or ‘don’t do anything stupid’ . Well, it was obvious that Fabregas didn’t understand the stupid comment years ago when he opted to join Chelsea and team up with Jose Mourinho.

The former Arsenal captain received his marching orders last night for a horrendous challenge on Liverpool’s Ragnar Klavan – yeah, we don’t have a clue who, either – during the two Premier League clubs’ tour of the United States.

X-rated stuff from Cesc there?a couple of inches higher and that’s a bloody leg-breaker! Although the two-time Barcelona midfielder did apologise to Klavan after the game.

“I think that the fatigue sometimes can bring a [player] to go too late.

“I know Fabregas is a good man, a good boy and is not a player to have this type of situation. I’m sorry for him, I’m sorry for the Liverpool player.”

Thankfully, Chelsea’s official Twitter account was around to offer some light relief to a horrible spectacle by suggesting that their midfielder was unlucky to be sent for an early bath.

With tackle and tweets like that, it’s almost like Jose Mourinho never left…
