John Terry and Rafa Benitez had a bust-up at yesterdays Chelsea' training, sources claim. The Chelsea captain and interim manager reportedly clashed just before training at the club’s Cobham complex. Benitez called all players to discuss Sunday's 2-0 loss to Manchester City at Etihad Stadium.
After expressing his dismay at how the team played, Benitez asked the players for their reaction to the loss. Terry, who was benched for the match, was quick to voice his opinion which immediately escalated into a row between the pair.
A witness said: “It all kicked off between John Terry and Benitez as their frustrations over Sunday boiled over into a big bust-up.”
This high-profile clash between the pair comes after The Sun apologised for incorrectly reporting that Benitez and Terry had allegedly rowed in the dressing room in the wake of Chelsea’s 3-2 defeat at Newcastle recently.
It is a alarming development of events at Stamford Bridge as the form of the team keeps dropping by every match. Chelsea are currently 4th on the table. A win over Manchester City on Sunday would have pushed them into a fight for the second position but after Tottenham's win over West Ham United on Monday has seen the Blues drop to fourth position.
