Ceballos speaks on altercation with Nketiah

Arsenal star, Dani Ceballos has spoken about a much-publicized bust-up with teammate, Eddie Nketiah. Ceballos insisted there were “no problems” between him and Nketiah, following the pre-match altercation.

Ahead of the Gunners’ first game of the Premier League season against Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday, Ceballos was filmed twice shoving Nketiah during an argument and the pair had to be separated.

The duo were late substitutes as Arsenal triumphed 3-0 against the newly-promoted side, with Alexandre Lacazette, Gabriel and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on target for a comfortable victory.

Following the match, Ceballos shared a photo of himself and Nketiah on Instagram with the caption: “No problems here. My brother.”

Arsenal tweeted the picture from their official account and added: “It happens.” Asked about the incident in his post-game news conference, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta said: “I haven’t seen anything. I was inside.”
