Rüdiger and Füllkrug play down Germany training brawl

Antonio Rüdiger and Niclas Füllkrug were involved in a training ground scuffle on Monday, but have since played down the incident.

 

On Monday, Bild reported that Antonio Rüdiger and Niclas Füllkrug had got into a heated argument during a training session in Germany.

After a heavy tackle, Füllkrug got up and walked towards Rüdiger, the two pushed each other and almost came to blows, the German tabloid claims.

Assistant coach Sandro Wagner had to intervene to separate them, and Rüdiger went for a run with the fitness coach to calm down.

However, the two players appeared to play down the incident on Instagram on Monday night, sending each other hearts under a post by Niclas Füllkrug.

Germany kick off Euro 2024 against Scotland on Friday, with Rüdiger expected to start and Füllkrug an option from the bench.
