Despite multiple efforts to sanitise the game, football is a sport that often fires up the emotions for all involved.
Players clash all the time and, occasionally, ones one the same team come to blow as well. Indeed, according to most ex-pros, it’s a common occurrence on the training pitch.
Leeds United forward Jay-Roy Grot had his experience of that this week, with De Telegraaf reporting that he’s been involved in a clash with teammate Riechedly Bazoer.
Grot is currently spending the season on loan at Vitesse from Elland Road after Marcelo Bielsa decided not to keep him this season.
He’s had a mixed start to life with the Dutch club, managing one goal and one assist in ten games.
That’s not great and now he and to add to his woes he’s now been involved in a ‘collision’ with teammate Bazoer on Wednesday.
However, Leeds man appears to have been the more innocent party in the affair, which happened in a public training session.
Instead, Bazoer was the man causing the most problems, telling Grot “I’ll get you in the dressing room” before turning on manager Leonid Slutsky, telling the Russian “F*** off, I don’t want to play for your team.”
This all resulted in him being sent away from training, with the club confirming an incident had happened but refusing to reveal the content of it.
