Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri was forced to abandon training on Friday after Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Oguchi Onyewu came to blows, according to Goal.com Italia.
It’s not yet known what exactly caused the row but it’s been reported that the 28-year-old American defender grabbed Ibrahimovic by the throat after he was tackled by the Sweden international. The former Barcelona striker then tried to retaliate and the pair had to be separated by team-mates.
However, Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has dismissed the fight as a minor matter.
“It was a fairly lively fight, it happens when there is a rough challenge," he told Sky Sport 24.
“The players have been talked to. The incident is now over.”
