Kovac confirms training ground bust-up between two Bayern Munich stars

Bayern Munich manager, Niko Kovac confirmed in a press conference that Kingsley Coman and Robert Lewandowski had a fight between each other during training this week.

Bild, a German news agency, claimed on Thursday that the two Bayern Munich attackers came to blows after a disagreement during training, and Kovac confirmed that the two did do so, but none of them have been charged or sanctioned for their behaviour.

During a press conference on Friday, Kovac said that "There was a fight between two players who were named in the media," thus confirming what many were suspecting had happened.

However, despite their behaviour, Kovac decided to sort out the situation in a humane manner, saying that "The three of us discussed it after training, and both apologised for their behaviour and were sorry for what happened." The manager also added that "No one is being fined because both players were understanding".

Whilst over the years there have been plenty of training ground arguments in football, this case stole the headlines for it being in a club that is currently flying in the league, after Bayern Munich beat Borussia Dortmund last weekend by five goals to nil.

Robert Lewandowski is currently dominating the Bundesliga, with him being the top scorer with 21 goals, whilst Kingsley Coman is still finding his way back to top form after plenty of injuries in the last few seasons, with him having just three goals in 15 Bundesliga appearances this season.

The two players have to put this argument behind them, with Bayern Munich still chasing the league, as they face a tough away fixture against Fortuna Dusseldorf on Sunday.
