Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany was allegedly involved in a half time confrontation with Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho during last weekend’s 2-1 defeat to Liverpool.
According to the Mirror, Manager Manuel Pellegrini attempted to diffuse the row but Kompany allegedly refused to calm down.
An insider claims that team-mates feared that the two players would come to blows in the dressing room.
The Belgian Manchester City star was at fault for Liverpool’s opener but didn’t take it very well when Fernandinho blamed him for the goal at half time.
Along with Fernandinho, Kompany was dropped for the Citizens 2-0 win at Leicester City three days later.
The 28 year old centre back was once considered one of the best centre halves in the world but his form has certainly dipped in recent times.
It is unclear whether or not Pellegrini will allow the skipper to return for Saturday’s trip to Burnley in the Premier League.
