5 Memorable Onfield Fights Between Teammates

5 Memorable Onfield Fights Between Teammates

By Keegan Kruger - Sep 21, 2017 11:00 AM @KeeganKruger

After Neymar's spat with Paris Saint-Germain teammate Edinson Cavani on the weekend, we take a look at a few memorable onfield fights that erupted between members of the same club.

Tired of reading? Click through the gallery above to see some players who fought with their own teammates during matches.

The Brazilian was seen arguing with the Uruguayan forward over a penalty kick during PSG's 2-0 win over Olympique Lyon on Sunday. Defender Thiago Silva reportedly had separate the two stars in the changing room following their disagreements during the game.

They're not the only players who have had an onfield spat, though. Back in 2008, Arsenal teammates Emmanuel Adebayor and Nicklas Bendtner were seen having a row on the field when the Gunners were trailing 4-1 against their London rivals Tottenham Hotspur, according to talkSPORT. The Togolese international later admitted that the fallout was due to the Dane wearing sneakers in the dressing room.

Former England international Steve McManaman and Zimbabwe-born goalkeeper Bruce Grobbelaar were another pair that had a go at each other on the pitch, during a Merseyside derby in 1993. The Telegraph reported that the ex-Liverpool shot-stopper was furious with the young winger after he cleared a ball weakly, which then resulted in Everton scoring. Grobbelaar was seen giving a mouthful to McManaman, who then argued back, with the No. 1 then grabbing the midfielder by the throat.

In 2005, Kieron Dyer and Lee Bowyer physically came to blows while Newcastle United were trailing 3-0 to Aston Villa in a league encounter. The punch-up began after Bowyer insulted Dyer, who could not hold back his anger as a result.

Neymar & Cavani In Heated Penalty Row

During the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, Cameroon defender Benoit Assou-Ekotto headbutted Benjamin Moukandjo during their game against Croatia. The former Tottenham Hotspur player later said he attacked his teammate after he refused to acknowledge any criticism during the Indomitable Lions' 4-0 defeat.
