At a press conference today, Bayern coach Niko Kovac briefly talked about the violent altercation.
"Punches were traded during yesterday's training. The players have been named in the media. We then had a three-way conversation. The players are sorry and have apologized. There will be no fines, because the guys were insightful - and that's very important. The matter has been settled," Kovac told reporters.
According to Bild, Robert Lewandowski has been frustrated with Kingsley Coman for a while, because he believes the winger dribbles too much and makes too few successful passes and crosses to him.
Meanwhile, Coman feels Lewandowski is often too selfish on the pitch and that the striker is too focused on getting on the scoresheet at the expense of doing what's best for the team.
