A furious Maurizio Sarri stormed out of Chelsea training on Tuesday – as David Luiz and Gonzalo Higuain squared up in Baku.
The Blues boss threw his cap to the ground in anger before kicking it for good measure, before racing down the tunnel.
Earlier in Tuesday training session, Higuain had gone in late on Luiz – with the pair going their separate ways, before storming back towards each other to exchange words.
The club claims the two incidents – the player row and Sarri’s tantrum – are unrelated, as BT Sport cameras caught all of the madness.

However, all the tension is likely to do any good ahead of Wednesday night’s monster game.
Speaking on BT Sport, ex-Chelsea star Eidur Gudjohnsen claimed: “It does raise concerns. something must have gone on.
“You obviously have a group of players with big personalities and the last thing you need or want is for your players to get injured.
“Something has gotten the manager very angry in that situation as you can see.
“Something went on and sort of ruined the training session, that is what it looked like from here, anyway.
“You don’t want to see your players arguing, that’s for sure.
