In 2004, when Manchester United defeated Arsenal and ended the Gunners unbeaten run, someone threw a slice of pizza at former Red Devils manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
The name of this player has remained unknown until today, when Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas admits he is “guilty”: “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”. – Fabregas said on Sky One’s League of their Own – I was like I want to get in but I don’t know how to and I threw… peeew… just threw it. Once I saw it was hitting, like, who it was hitting, which I didn’t mean. The pizza struck Ferguson in the face. I apologise Sir Alex, really didn’t mean to do that.”
