City team-mates in training bust-up

The latest came as Roberto Mancini's side were completing preparations for the crucial trip to Arsenal and involved former Gunners team-mates Emmanuel Adebayor and Kolo Toure.

As so often, the flashpoint was a tackle, to which Adebayor is thought to have reacted.

Pictures of half a dozen team-mates moving in to quell the set-to were circulated on the internet, forcing City officials to insist there was no major issue and the matter had quickly been sorted.

Quite possibly, City are correct in their assertion that perception of discontent is someway short of reality.
