Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink has spoken of Cesc Fabregas’ involvement in the Battle of the Bridge.

The Dutchman has lifted the lid on what really happened when Chelsea and Tottenham players were involved in a bust-up outside the Stamford Bridge tunnel.

Hiddink also alleged that Spurs staff were involved in a spat with Cesc as the players left the field after the record-breaking ill-tempered encounter.

He told the press: “They were talking to each other loudly in Spanish, between their bench and Cesc.

“I took him away into the tunnel and then the shuffling started a bit where I lost my balance.

“Later on one of my physios, who wanted to protect me, tried to get into the dressing room. But Cesc was not involved.

“There were too many incidents, too many incidents, of course it was a hot game, there’s always a rivalry, but within the rules of sportsmanship.

“You have to play very close to the edge but there were too many chest-to-chest situations which was not good for the game. It’s up to the FA what to do.”
