Monaco midfielder Cesc to land Europa League winners' medal

AS Monaco midfielder Cesc Fabregas will be sent a Europa League winners' medal after Chelsea's victory in Baku.

Cesc watched his former Chelsea team-mates lift the trophy from the BT Sport punditry box in Baku.

The midfielder, who was working as an analyst for BT on Wednesday, featured throughout the group stage for the west London club before moving to Monaco in January.

After watching them beat Arsenal 4-1, Fabregas was offered the chance to join Chelsea's players on the pitch but declined the invite to continue his television duties.

The likeable Spaniard later got his hands on the trophy once off air and will be sent a medal, says the Daily Mail.
