Fabregas apologises

ARSENAL captain Cesc Fabregas yesterday apologised for his outburst at referee Lee Mason in the tunnel during half-time of his team's 2-1 victory over Everton, saying his comments were made in the "heat of the moment."

Fabregas was fuming with Mason over his controversial decision to allow Everton's opening goal from Louis Saha.

The Spanish World Cup winner will escape any sanction from the FA as Mason decided not to mention it in his report on the match, even though Everton manager David Moyes described the comments as "disgusting" and claimed the 23-year-old should have been sent off for what he said.
