Six Times Footballers Had A Clash With Their Teammates On The Pitch

Footballers fighting with opponents is not something new as we have witnessed such scenario time and again. But when a footballer exchanges blows with a teammate, them it becomes more worrisome. Why would people fighting for a common goal, become enemies all of a sudden?

However, this has played out a number of times. Sometimes, these teammates clashed with each other during a game, while at other times these "fights" happened in training sessions. This shows that football is a very emotional sport, and teammates too could be overwhelming by these emotions, and have a go at each other.

There may be more instances where a footballer and a teammate clashed, but here are just six of such cases.

1. Lee Bowyer and Kieron Dyer

Both Newcastle players were shown a red card after they exchanged blows during a Premier League game.

2. Sergio Ramos and Sergio Reguilon

Real Madrid teammates Ramos and Reguilon clashed with each other during a training session.

3. Oguchi Onyewu and Zlatan Ibrahimovic

While teammates at AC Milan, Ibrahimovic and Onyewu once got involved a "fight."

4. Andy Carroll and Stephen Taylor

While playing for Newcastle, Taylor and Carroll had a misunderstanding which resulted in exchange of blows.

5. John Hartson and Eyal Berkovic

During a training session with West Ham, Berkovic and Hartson had some disagreement, resulting in the latter kicking the former across the face.

6. Ouamane Dabo and Joey Barton

This resulted in a prison sentence for Barton, after he physically assaulted teammate Dabo, causing him to be hospitalized.

Are there any more examples which I may have omitted, that you would like to talk about? Kindly share your thoughts in the comment box.
