John Terry and the interim Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez were involved in a row at the club's Cobham training complex om Monday, according to the Sun.

The stunned players were in dismay after watching their captain and coach clash just before the session, the paper reports.

It seems an alarming situation for the club as their form continues to dip from the start of the season where they were at the top of the table until week nine.

Benitez had called all the players in a circle to discuss their 2-0 loss to Manchester City. Terry, who did not make the squad on Sunday, spoke out and soon both got involved in an argument.

A witness said: “It all kicked off between JT and Benitez as their frustrations over Sunday boiled over into a big bust-up.”

Chelsea could have given City a run for their money for the second place, if they had beaten thier rivals on Sunday.

Now Tottenham have replaced Chelsea in the third spot with a thrilling win over West Ham United. Arsenal are knocking on the door of the current Champions League holders for the qualifying spot, with just a two points gap between them.
