A steward was sacked by Chelsea for calling former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas a "snake".

Video of the Stamford Bridge incident, which took place earlier this season, emerged online on Friday and Chelsea confirmed action had been taken against the steward.

"You're a snake, you're Arsenal," the steward says to the Spain midfielder in the video, which has been widely shared on social network sites.

Fabregas returns to his former club with Chelsea in the Barclays Premier League on Sunday.
