David Beckham v Alex Ferguson
The most famous changing room bust up of them all!
After losing to Arsenal in the FA Cup fifth round in 2003 Ferguson reportedly kicked a football boot which went flying and hit Beckham on the eyebrow.
The incident was pegged down to a freak accident and that all was well, however Beckham then moved to Madrid four months later adding to speculation.
We will never know.
Joey Barton v Alan Shearer
If you remember Alan Shearer’s brief stint as the caretaker manager at Newcastle in 2009 you will remember when Barton got sent off against Liverpool.
Shearer told Barton it was a mistake to bring him back in the side and Barton reacted by telling the manager in less than polite terms that he was the best player there and that Shearer was not up to the task.
Newcastle were relegated a month later.
Roy Keane v Mick McCarthy
Cast your minds back to 2002 World Cup in South Korea, Mick McCarthy was the manager of the Republic of Ireland and Roy Keane was playing under him, but was not too impressed.
Losing his temper and shouting some expletives at McCarthy, Keane was sent home and forced to watch the rest of the tournament on tv.
Mike Phillips v Gethin Jenkins
After Wales’ defeat to Ireland at the beginning of 2014 tensions were running high in the dressing room which resulted in a kerfuffle between Mike Phillips and Gethin Jones.
It resulted in Mike Phillips being axed from the side.
Kevin Pietersen v Matt Prior
There has been an ongoing battle between these two which came to a head when Matt Prior was a bit too frank when giving his opinion on Pietersen leaving the England squad.
Clearly no love lost between these two.
