Patrice Evra and Nemanja Vidic had to be pulled apart by Manchester United staff after defeat to Liverpool this past season. The Daily Mail says they had to be separated by David Moyes and other members of staff as United's players pored over replays of a 3-0 defeat to Liverpool at Old Trafford in March.
Vidic, who was sent off after receiving two yellow cards, accused Evra of neglecting his defensive duties by leaving him exposed. The Frenchman is said to have exploded with anger and had to be restrained as the incident threatened to boil over at United's Carrington training base.
Vidic, who is leaving United after more than eight years to join Inter Milan, confirmed yesterday that the players fell out as their season lurched from one disappointment to another.
Vidic and Evra, who joined United together in January 2006 from Spartak Moscow and Monaco respectively, have since settled their differences and Evra could even join the Serb at Inter if he too decides to leave Old Trafford now his contract has expired.
