The hitherto unsolved mystery of who threw a pizza at former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson is over.
The culprit is Chelsea’s Cesc Fabregas. The midfielder himself made the revelation.
The event happened in 2004 and had remained an unresolved mystery until Fabregas’ confession on James Corden’s League of their Own episode on Wednesday.
“Can we finally put the case of the flying pizza to bed once and for all? Were you the culprit that thew the pizza?” Fabregas was asked.
“Yes,” replied Fabregas. “Martin Keown is a liar because I saw him in front of me just, like, punching people so he didn’t see anything.

“All of a sudden, I heard noises and I thought what’s happening? So I go out with my slice of pizza and I saw Sol Campbell, Rio Ferdinand, Martin Keown… everyone pushing each other.
“I was like I want to get in but I don’t know how to and I threw, just threw it. Once I saw it was hitting, like, who it was hitting, which I didn’t mean.
“I apologise Sir Alex, really didn’t mean to do that.”
