Demarai Gray says he broke up a training ground argument between Everton teammates Yerry Mina and Anthony Gordon last season, writes the TBR.
In an interview with the Athletic, Gray opened up on what the atmosphere was like around the club during that relegation fight.
He said altercations never really turned physical, but people were at each other’s throats at times, with tempers often threatening to boil over.
“We fought with each other a lot towards the end of the season,” Gray said.
“It never got to the physical point. People would step in before that. Just vocals and getting at one another.
“You need that. It’s important. I always laugh after. Seamus (Coleman) is the peacemaker — lovely guy but he’ll tell you how it is. Dom (Calvert-Lewin) had one. You don’t mess with Yerry (Mina).
“I remember one time Yerry had a little pop at Anthony (Gordon). You see how Anthony plays, he’s fiery, so he’ll give it back and I had to separate it on the pitch. But we laugh about it later.”
