Hull lodge Fabregas case with FA

LONDON, March 31 – Hull said Monday they had submitted their case to the Football Association regarding allegations that assistant manager Brian Horton was spat at by Arsenal club captain Cesc Fabregas.
Hull's case relaties to the aftermath of their 2-1 loss to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in an FA Cup quarter-final.

CESC_FABREGASTigers manager Phil Brown is adamant he saw Spain midfielder Fabregas – who was out injured and did not play but came on after full-time to celebrate with his team-mates – spit towards Horton in the tunnel.

Brown told Monday’s Hull Daily Mail that he had now sent in his evidence to the FA as hard Horton and fitness conditioner Sean Rush.

"My evidence has gone in, Brian Horton’s evidence has gone in and Sean Rush’s evidence has as well. That is all that has been necessary as regards to us up to now," Brown said.

"There is an independent solicitor representing us and hopefully there will be no bias towards any one club.

"We really just want the truth to come out. If the truth comes out, then we have got nothing to worry about." Fabregas vehemently denies the allegations.

The FA subsequently confirmed they had received the relevant documents from Hull and that these will be taken into consideration. Both Arsenal and Fabregas himself may be contacted for their observations before the FA decide whether to take the matter any further.
