Bust Up No.2 At Eastlands
These pictures speak a 1,000 words, as they say.
The scene was set and Carrington was host to this spectacular event. Manchester City had been training in preparation for their clash against Arsenal tomorrow night when the fisticuffs took place.
It was training as normal when Adebayor, who's been constantly rumored to leave Eastlands this January, lashed out on teammate Kolo Toure. All hell broke loose between the pair with Patrick Viera, Vincent Kompany and Co. desperately trying to heave them off another and the photographers picked up a nice little bonus this afternoon, selling the coveted photos to the Daily Mirror, who broke the story late this morning.
Mancini must be furious considering this is the second fight between players in recent weeks, with Mario Balotelli and Jerome Boateng both going at it back in December.
It further strengthens reports that there is trouble brewing inside Eastlands and they are not equipped to win the title.
It is unknown if Mancini will select these players for his match squad tomorrow evening and it further destroys the clubs image, which owner Sheikh Mansour will surely investigate, considering the circumstances.
