Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini denies reports of a player bust-up

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has recently refuted claims that defender and captain Vincent Kompany and midfielder Fernandinho were involved in a half-time argument with each other during their 2-1 defeat to Liverpool, reports BBC Sport.

Liverpool boosted their chances of finishing in the top-four this season with an impressive victory against Manchester City at Anfield. It capped a poor run of form for City, which has seen them drop points all too readily in consecutive weeks, and could well have contributed to a fallout between some of the players.

“There is not any problem. There was a normal scene, nothing important. It is not important to talk about what happened 20 days ago. The squad is absolutely together,” said Pellegrini.

Vincent Kompany in particular had a woeful game against Liverpool, making costly errors that cost his side the match. The Belgian centre-back has struggled for form all through the campaign, and has been culpable for many goals conceded.

With Fernandinho and Kompany having an argument at half-time, reports were suggesting that Manchester City were having in-house problems in the side, something Manuel Pellegrini has strongly denied. The Premier League title is slipping out of their grasp this season, and the Liverpool defeat made life even harder, considering leaders Chelsea have a game in hand on the holders. The Chilean coach remains positive, however.
