Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas feels that accusations his country is racist are ‘extreme’.
The Football Association recently announced it would not allow England’s proposed friendly with Spain to be played at the Santiago Bernabeu in Madrid after several England players were racially abused the last time they played there in 2004.
Arsenal playmaker Fabregas has attempted to play down the accusations surrounding Spain’s supporters, claiming it is misleading.
He told Sky Sports News: “I don’t know if racism is the word. I wasn’t in the team when that match was played but Ashley Cole was playing for England and he felt a little upset.
“They see us as racists. But I don’t think we are. It’s a bit extreme.”
