London, Mar.18 (ANI): Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas has been sensationally accused of spitting at Hull assistant manager Brian Horton.
According to The Sun, Fabregas stormed over to Horton after the Gunners' controversial 2-1 FA Cup win and spat at him on The Emirates pitch.
Hull boss Phil Brown raged: "I was there, I witnessed it. Fabregas spat at our assistant manager. That's their club captain. Hopefully he's proud of himself. He spat at his feet."
But last night a stunned Fabregas phoned The Sun to vehemently deny the claim.
He insisted: "I absolutely and categorically deny I spat at anyone and I cannot understand why Hull are making these accusations against me.
"I have never spat at anyone in my life. It is a disgusting habit. Why would I do something like that after a match I was not even playing in? (ANI)
