Cesc Fabregas has hit out at the FA over his improper conduct charge and says his conscience will be clear even if he is found guilty of spitting at Hull assistant manager Brian Horton.
The feisty Arsenal captain said he did not even know he had been charged by the FA on two counts after remonstrating with Hull officials following the Gunners' fiery 2-1 FA Cup quarter-final win on March 17.
Fabregas also said players and officials from both clubs should be suspended for encroaching on the playing area following the game if he is punished at this month's FA hearing into his conduct.
The Arsenal midfielder said: 'I don't really know what I have been charged with. If theysuspend me for that (spitting), my heart and mind will be relaxed because I have notdone anything wrong.
'When I came on to the pitch another eight players were also on the pitch, so everyoneshould be suspended for that.'
