Marcos Alonso has opened up about the training ground bust-up between Chelsea teammates Antonio Rudiger and Kepa Arrizabalaga.
According to the Telegraph, the pair were separated after an altercation, with Thomas Tuchel sending Rudiger in from training five minutes before the end of the session to calm down.
The feud stemmed from a small-sided game in which Kepa was said to be the victim of a late tackle from Rudiger.
And Marcos Alonso has cleared up the talk around it and said it was “good for the team”.
“These are things that happen,” Alonso told beINSPORTS.
“This shows the level of competition there is in the team, the hunger we saw on training ground – that’s good for the team. Of course, even before training finished it was all good.
“[It is] nothing new, it has always happened, it will still happen and the thing we need to take is take the positves and move on and get ready for the next game.”
Chelsea are set to face Porton in the Champions League quarter-finals on Wednesday.
