Bayern Munich teammates Arturo Vidal and Joshua Kimmich may not have been getting on during the Confederations Cup final but for two Arsenal teammates it was a different story. The respect between Shkodran Mustafi and Alexis Sanchez continued after the match too.
Teammates don't always have to get on, and sometimes that doesn't affect how well work goes. I bet you don't like everyone you work with and you can be just as unproductive being surrounded by people you do and don't like.
Andy Cole and Teddy Sheringham famously didn't get on but won the Treble at Manchester United together whilst David Batty and Graeme Le Saux managed to have a fight on the pitch and remain teammates.

So we hope that Vidal and Kimmich's little scuffle won't stop them performing for Bayern Munich.
On the opposite part of the scale are Mustafi and Sanchez who stayed besties on Sunday even when they were playing against each other in the Confederations Cup final.
The pair embraced at full-time and then the German sent a respectful tweet to Chilean afterwards:
Germany were successful in the tournament, winning the final 1-0 against the back-to-back South American champions, and had to go through Chile twice in the tournament with only one goal separating the two sides.
In the group stages Sanchez' goal gave Juan Antonio Pizzi's side a 1-1 draw with the world champions but they couldn't score the goal they needed for extra time in the final.
Despite the lovely sentiment in Mustafi's message Arsenal fans couldn't help themselves in the replies
Tell him to sign a new contract, Mus.- Arsènic (@Lexus7Sanchez) July 2, 2017
I hope you was laughing because he told you he's staying.- Original Alexis (@OriginalMaxP93) July 3, 2017
