“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.
The Daily Mirror report that a Chelsea spokesman said: “The steward no longer works at Stamford Bridge.”
Fabregas returns to his former club with Chelsea in the Barclays Premier League on Sunday.
