Chelsea are playing down suggestions of an alleged bust-up between coach Henk ten Cate and captain John Terry prior to Sunday´s Carling Cup final defeat by Tottenham.

The pair were reported to have been pulled apart by other players after a training ground row and the confrontation was understood to have been seen by the club´s billionaire owner Roman Abramovich who was visiting the training ground.

A Chelsea spokesperson dismissed the row suggestions and said: "All our focus is on our next game."
