Bayern Munich were rocked yesterday, April 12, when it was revealed that stars Robert Lewandowski and Kingsley Coman had a fist fight in the training. Reports from Germany now indicate that the altercation between the two was a result of bad blood brewing over a period of time.
German publication Bild has revealed the reason behind the training ground fight between Robert Lewandowski and Kingsley Coman. According to the publication, tensions between the two existed a long time before the altercation.
Reportedly, Robert Lewandowski started the brawl by remarking that Coman wasn’t taking training seriously. The Pole had a problem with his teammate’s style of play which involves keeping a hold of the ball and dribbling past the opponents.
Moreover, the Polish striker was also annoyed at receiving too few successful passes and crosses from Coman and remarked about the same.
Bayern Munich manager Nico Kovac later confirmed the training ground fight between the pair during his press conference, while also stating that it is a matter of the past.
“The three of us talked about it. The players are sorry and have apologised for their behaviour,” said Kovac.
“There will be no financial penalties and the matter has been resolved.”
Meanwhile, the duo will now look to turn their attention back to the Bundesliga, as Bayern play Fortuna Dusseldorf on April 14. The Bavarians are currently leading the German top flight with six games to go, after beating Borussia Dortmund five-nil last weekend.
