The mystery surrounding Pizzagate has finally been solved.
Former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas has admitted once and for all it was he who threw pizza into the face of legendary Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson in October 2004, the match which became known as the Battle of the Buffet.
An infamous tunnel brawl between Arsenal and United players at Old Trafford followed a controversial 2-0 win for the hosts, which ended the Gunners’ historic 49-match unbeaten run, Wayne Rooney having been awarded a contentious penalty.
Players from both sides were scrapping after the match before Ferguson was left with pizza all over him after a member of the away dressing room threw it in his direction.
Asked to confirm he threw the pizza on Sky’s ‘A League of Their Own’, Fabregas said: “Yes!
“All of a sudden, I heard noises and I thought what’s happening? So I go out with my slice of pizza and I saw Sol Campbell, Rio Ferdinand, Martin Keown – everyone pushing each other.
“I was like I want to get in but I don’t know how to and I threw – peeew – just threw it. Once I saw it was hitting, like, who it was hitting, which I didn’t mean… I apologise Sir Alex, I really didn’t mean to do that!”
