[Tweet] Bellerin responds to reports he was involved in bust-up with Arsenal team mate

By on April 25, 2018

Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin has hit back at the Daily Mail for claiming he was involved in a training ground bust-up with Alexandre Lacazette.

The newspaper ran a story earlier this afternoon suggesting that Bellerin and Lacazette clashed during training at London Colney this morning as they challenged for a high ball.

The Mail said the Arsenal duo appeared to ‘square up to each other’ and had to be separated by team mates during a routine training drill as the squad prepared for the visit of Atletico Madrid tomorrow night.

With a huge Europa League semi-final first leg just over 24 hours away, two of our starting eleven having a row wouldn’t have been the ideal preparation.

However, Bellerin has been quick to play down the incident after taking to Twitter to claim it was just ‘banter’ between the two players and branded the Daily Mail as ‘click baiters’.

Here are the tweets:

These types of things happen at training grounds all over the world every day so fair play to Hector for calling the paper out on this story. Too often the media get away with making up stories and causing a stir over nothing.
