Fulham’s Aleksandar ­Mitrovic and Aboubakar Kamara ‘dragged apart by team-mates after fight during yoga’

Fulham players Aleksandar ­Mitrovic and Aboubakar Kamara are reported to have had a fight during a yoga session that forced their team-mates to pull the pair apart.

The Sun claim Mitrovic and Kamara were ‘at each other’s throats’ during the session, with Claudio Ranieri, the Fulham manager, left ‘stunned’ by the incident.

The alleged ‘fight’ has taken place just a few weeks after Kamara was blasted by Ranieri for taking a penalty against Huddersfield after stealing the ball from Mitrovic, the club’s designated spot-kick taker.

Kamara’s attempt from 12 yards was saved by Terriers’ goalkeeper Jonas Lossl, but he failed to keep out Mitrovic’s late winner, which secured Fulham a vital three points and ensured Kamara’s penalty miss was not too serious.

Nonetheless, Ranieri said after the match that Kamara – signed in 2017 from Amiens – ‘did not respect me, the club, team-mates and crowd’.

“I said to Aboubakar Kamara to leave the ball to Aleksandar Mitrovic,” Ranieri continued. “He is the man who shoots the penalties. It is unbelievable what he did.

“I wanted to kill him. That is normal when one man takes a ball, only because he scored the last penalty (against Manchester United). It should be Mitrovic, that is it.”

The defeat of Huddersfield at the end of December was Fulham’s last win in any competition, with Ranieri’s side losing to Arsenal and Burnley either side of a home defeat by League Two Oldham Athletic in the FA Cup.
