Godin furious with dishonorable Fabregas

Villarreal defender Diego Godin has accused Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas of breaking a “code of honour” for spilling the beans on a bust-up between himself and Sebastien Eguren. The Spaniard criticised Eguren following the Gunners' Champions League quarter-final victory over the Yellow Submarine on Wednesday night, claiming the Uruguayan midfielder insulted and provoked him throughout the match at the Emirates Stadium. However, Godin has hit back, saying players should never reveal matters that occur on the pitch to the media.

“It has been and always will be part of football, but players should never tell it," he told Marca.

“Someone telling what happens on the pitch is not good to me. Every player is aware that there is a code of honour on the pitch and what happens there should stay there.”

Eguren was sent off during the second leg clash at the Emirates after protesting an Arsenal penalty following a foul by Godin on Theo Walcott.

And Godin believes the referee made a mistake in awarding the spot-kick that resulted in the Gunners' third goal.

“I do not need to watch the play because from the moment it happened I immediately knew it was not a penalty," he said.

“Then the TV pictures helped me confirm this should have been a goal-kick. Anyway, we were already dead before the penalty incident.”
