WATCH: Roma Teammates Dzeko And Manolas Kick Off A Mass Brawl
Roma's first day of pre-season training could make for interesting viewing after Giallorossi teammates Edin Dzeko and Kostas Manolas erupted a mass brawl during a World Cup qualifier between Bosnia and Greece, last night.
The entire game in Zenica was tense, following the booing of the Greek national anthem by Bosnia's fans at the Bilino Polje Stadium.
After the referee blew the final whistle, bringing an end to a goalless draw, tempers flared when Roma pair Dzeko and Manolas became engaged in an altercation that led to Dzeko pushing Manolas in the face.
From there, chaos erupted:

Seconds later, players from both sides flew at each other in a blur of fist throwing fury, like a Balkan kung-fu film.

Following the match, Manolas expressed his anger at the Bosnian fans for 'disrespecting' the Greek national anthem, before the game.
Speaking to Cosmote TV, the defender said, "Some things should not be done. It was a shame that they have disrespected our national anthem. These things are not football."
The result, somewhat overshadowed by the post-match punch up, leaves Greece in second place in Group H, a point ahead of Bosnia.
At the time of writing, no punishments have been handed out to either country by UEFA.
