Brilliant pictures emerge of Lascelles, Ritchie & Rafa after ‘furious bust up’

After claims that there’d been a ‘furious’ training ground bust-up between Jamaal Lascelles and Matt Ritchie, a brilliant picture has emerged of both in training today – with them looking all smiles alongside Rafa Benitez.

The Mail’s Craig Hope claimed earlier in the week that Lascelles took issue with Rafa Benitez’s set up ahead of Sunday’s game with Chelsea, resulting in an alleged bust up between the skipper and Ritchie – with the latter believed to have told Lascelles so ‘get on with it’.

Eithet way, it look like it’s been blown out of proportion based on these pictures that have emerged from the training ground today!

(See them together here about 5-6 seconds into the clip below:)

What rift?! They look like best buds, not enemies ready to tear each other’s heads off!

Both missed Wednesday night’s Carabao Cup defeat to Nottingham Forest through injury, however this should calm fans fears that there is still a rift between the pair.

I bet there was a coming together, but this proves once and for all that they’ve quickly got over it!

  1. Regardless if the rift is over or not, Ritchie showing Lascelles how to act like a captain. Lascelles’ ego seems to have surpassed his ability.
