The Mad Reason Robert Lewandowski And Kingsley Coman Came To Blows In Training
Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac has confirmed that Robert Lewandowski and Kingsley Coman did trade blows during a training session but neither will be fined.
Defenders Niklas Sule and Jerome Boateng apparently had to come in to diffuse the situation, with the incident reported by BILD on Thursday.
As far as Kovac is concerned, the two players have apologised and the case is closed.
"There was a fight between two players who were named in the media," Kovac said in a press conference on Friday, as per Goal.
"The three of us discussed it after training, and both apologised for their behaviour and were sorry for what happened.
"No one is being fined because both players were understanding, and being understanding is very important now. The matter is done and dusted."
The Croatian one put it down to training and "emotion" however BILD also go on to say that there have been a whole host of problems between Lewandowski and Coman.

The Polish striker is said to have grown frustrated and angry with the Frenchman this season for not passing to him enough this season - specifically in the defeat against Leverkusen back in February.
Robert Lewandowski has long been annoyed by the style of play of Coman. The reason: Too many dribbles, too few successful passes & crosses to the striker. Especially in the defeat against Leverkusen, Lewandowski was very angry at Coman as he barely passed him the ball. [Bild] pic.twitter.com/G8n2ilvkHs- Bayern & Germany (@iMiaSanMia) April 12, 2019
But while the relationship between the pair may not seem all rosy, Bayern have been on form on the pitch in recent times and now sit top of the Bundesliga table with six games to go.
The 5-0 thumping of title rivals Borussia Dortmund last week meant the two sides changed positions and now the momentum is with the Bavarians to lift a seventh successive league title.
