CESE Fabregas is not going to let jibes about ‘boring’ Spain spoil the best day of his life.

The former Arsenal captain was a central figure in Kiev as Spain overwhelmed Italy 4-0 in the Euro 2012 final to become the first side to win three successive tournaments.

It was also the biggest margin of victory in a final during the tournament’s entire history and underlines La Roja’s status as one of the best national sides ever.

Yet the achievement has come amid claims Spain’s unique tiki-taka approach has become more concerned with stopping the opposition having possession than doing anything constructive themselves.

It is an opinion espoused by Fabregas’ former boss Arsene Wenger.

And it is not one he agrees with.

Speaking to Radio Five Live, Fabregas said: “Those people who think we are playing boring, in my opinion they don’t understand the game.

“This has been one of the best days of my life.

“Three major trophies in a row has never been done before in the history of football.
