Scandal at the training of FC Bayern: As the “Bild” reports, two Munich stars clashed on Wednesday afternoon and had to be separated from coach Hansi Flick. The protagonists: Jerome Boateng and Leon Goretzka.
What happened? According to “Bild” Goretzka went into a duel with the ex-international in the training game on the small field with an open sole, kicked in, although the ball was long gone. Boateng then went nuts and hit Goretzka in the face with the flat of his hand. Pictures from the training show the argument that Robert Lewandowski then intervened and pulled Boateng away. Trainer Hansi Flick also intervened, trying to calm the defender.
The 31-year-old shouted: “The ball was gone and it goes with the sole open. What’s the shit?” Then there was Thomas Müller, who then spoke to both players in the conscience. According to the “picture”, he especially focused on Goretzka: “Always the same shit with you!”
Peace gesture on Instagram
Because the Goretzka foul on Boateng had obviously preceded another conflict: In a controversial situation in the training game, the former Schalke had scolded – and responded to Müller’s attempts to explain with a derogatory gesture. Boateng then defended his former national team-mate.
After training, the waves between the two bouts seemed to have smoothed out. Because in the evening after the training Goretzka posted a picture with Boateng on Instagram. The national player wrote the hashtags “# FußballistEmotion”, “#AlleMalEntspannen” and “#miasanfamily”. In the post, he wanted to indicate that the players got along again after the incident.
