Fabregas Bid Emotional Farewell To Stamford Bridge

Cesc Fabregas left the Stamford Bridge pitch in tears after playing his final game for Chelsea.

The 31-year-old Spaniard whose contract will expire in the summer played in what appears to be his last home game for the Blues before reuniting with his former teammate Thierry Henry at Monaco.

While Fabregas captained Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, the game proved to be bittersweet for him as he saw his first-half penalty saved by Forest goalkeeper Luke Steele.

It was still goalless at the time, but Chelsea went on to score two second-half goals to progress to the next round of the FA Cup regardless.

With five minutes to go, boss Maurizio Sarri decided to haul the Spaniard off, sending N’Golo Kante to action.

Fabregas received a standing ovation from more than 40,000 gathered at the stadium as he made a tearful farewell to the Blues faithful.
