Cesc Fabregas Shows His Class Immediately After FA Cup Final Win

Cesc Fabregas proved he's a class act by being the first Chelsea player to go over to the Manchester United players after the FA Cup final at Wembley.

Chelsea won England's historic cup competition for the eighth time thanks to a first-half penalty from Eden Hazard after the Belgian was brought down by Phil Jones in the area.

Hazard had raced clear after latching onto a glorious pass from Fabregas and in a desperate attempt to thwart him, Jones took him out.

Chelsea celebrated ending a dismal season with a trophy but Fabregas made sure to console the losing United player - an act that doesn't always happen in cup finals as players often get caught up in the emotion of winning.

The triumph is Fabregas's 15th trophy in 15 seasons and it's extra special for the Spaniard as not only is it his second FA Cup success, he actually lost the medal he received when he won it with Arsenal in 2005.

Speaking to The Telegraph before the game, he said:

"This one, I cannot find it. I promise. My dad used to keep them and once I grew up, one day I said, 'Listen, where are all my medals and stuff?'.

He nearly lost the World Cup one even! It was in my mum's house in a box. I have nearly all of them, but I've lost two or three.

"I cannot find the FA Cup medal, so I hope I can replace it. It would be nice if that happened on Saturday."

Make sure you don't lose this one, Cesc!
