Chelsea defender, Marcos Alonso, has opened up on fellow teammates, Antonio Rudiger’s fight with Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Rudiger and Kepa were involved in an altercation at Chelsea’s training ground after their Premier League 5-2 shock defeat to West Brom over the weekend.
Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, had sent Rudiger away from training on Easter Day after a fight with Kepa.
Tuchel dismissed Rudiger to calm him down after pushing and shoving with Kepa.
However, reacting to the development ahead of Chelsea’s Champions League tie with Porto, Alonso played down the training ground bust-up between Rudiger and Kepa by saying it was “good for the team”.
“These are things that happen,” Alonso told INSPORTS.
“This shows the level of competition there is in the team, the hunger we saw on the training ground – that is 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 to take the positives and move on and get ready for the next game.”
