Did Cantona get on with Cole? Van Nistelrooy wasn't a fan of Young Stepover Ronaldo?
Didn't some players not like Schmikes?
Rooney and Nani. Albeit it was only really Rooney who hated Nani for some reason.
Edmundo and Romário...
The article reads like it was written by a teen. Many of the relationships do have some clear examples of animosity but then it finishes at nr. 1 with Bale and Ronaldo and barely a reason given except rumors?
Also, the article in 19 months old.
I remember something about van nistelrooy wasn’t happy with the step overs because he didn’t know when the ball was coming anymore than the defenders Ronny was trying to trick. But I don’t think it ever rose to hate. At least I never read anything that said as much, only that they had a conversation about the amount of stepovers.
No idea about Cole and cantona, knew Cole hated teddy but that’s it as far as I’m aware.
This is why Cole hated teddy for 15 years though for anyone that never saw it:
Yeah not sure what happened there. Why Sheringham did that. Think he later claimed there was nothing in it. But it really bothered Cole. I think they are the two most famous ones I think of, but who played together so well.
Never seen that. I don't get it. Cole wasn't happy because Teddy wasn't happy to being replaced by Cole? The crowd seemed pretty happy.
EDIT: And the lack of handshake?
Ruud telling Ronaldo to go cry to his father (Queiroz) just a few weeks after Cristiano's real dad had died didn't help.
Talking about RVN, yet nobody brought up RVN vs Kluivert?!
Adebayor's refusal to pass the ball to Bendtner for a simple tap-in against Birmingham cost us the league in 2008. Same match where Eduardo got his leg broken and Clichy gave away a soft penalty in the last minute.
Rooney and Ronaldo really couldn't stand each other, was kind of a big story actually.
Also Nani and Berbatov.
Is there still animosity between De Bruyne and Courtois?
The Cole thing sounds bitter. Sheringham was frustrated getting taken off and probably would have done that to anybody. No idea why Cole decided to take it personally.
Effenberg and Matthäus
Effenberg and Strunz
Keane and Schmeichel? Could be wrong, but I seem to recall a few anecdotes from years gone by implying that they're not fond of one another.
Cole has said in interviews thing that the whole thing is way overblown and the got along just fine. He was annoyed for a bit and that was it.
Romario and Edmundo when they played at Vasco da Gama. Really didn't get along well.
Oliver Khan and pretty much everybody
don't think so
For a while Bayern were labelled FC Hollywood for a reason.
If I remember correctly
Matthäus and Klinsmann hated each other
players squabbled with each other. big character and egos clashed. staff had affairs! (Beckenbauer and his secretary)
Strunz hated Effenberg for having an affair with his wife etc
Terry & Wayne bridge?
Klose and Frings.
Recall Frings was dropping it into Klose's wife at Bremen so he left for Bayern. Shortly after Frings joined Bayern, Klose left.
Could be fake news.
I can understand Cole being peeved. It's just standard protocol when your substituted to high five your replacement. It's not his fault you are being substituted.
Jan van Beveren and Johan Cruijff.
Van Beveren is one of our best ever keepers, but not following Cruijff completely destroyed his career.
That’s on a different level than those Psg sissies throwing a fit over a penalty.
The Charlton brothers never struck me as hating each other, I've heard it described as a healthy sibling rivalry as they climbed the footballing ladder that was mutually beneficial. Jackie was interviewed for that documentary about Bobby a while back, why would he have agreed to that if there was hatred between them?
Dunno about the story, but the timeline is different. Frings was at Bayern until 2005, then he went to Bremen. Klose went the other way in 2007. That means they played together for 2 years at Bremen, but didn‘t meet at Bayern.
Leno and Ter Stegen hated each other since their days in the youth national teams. Also one of the reasons why Leno got cut from the German WC squad in favour of PSGs second keeper.
Quite a few ex-players mention a couple of things about Nani:
He was the type of character that went into his shell when the boss criticised him, so he often needed an arm around him.
He had tons of talent but for some reason was never consistent with it. A bit of a waste.
Reading between the lines, maybe Rooney thought he was a pussy, didn't put enough effort in, or both!
Kieron Dyer and Lee Boyer?
Not sure Rooney hated Nani? Sure he got frustrated at him for his poor deliveries and bad decision making but so did everyone else in the stadium.
Icardi and Maxi Lopez didn't get along too well after Icardi got involved with Maxi Lopez's wife.
I also recall Mido and Zlatan hating each other but I'm too lazy to look it up.
Nasri and Frimpong: https://www.balls.ie/football/frimpong-nasri-fight-384645
That story was blown up by the (English) press. It was hardly mentioned in Belgium.
Emlyn Hughes and Tommy Smith. Smith called him “Thrush” (an irritating cnut)
There was an ITV doc about Andy Cole few years back. He said Teddy made him feel "small" by not wishing him good luck when he came on. Think it was his England debut so was probably never as hell.
Didn't they also have another run in after a goal Man. United conceded?
I think they've made up recently? And I doubt that there was hatred — just a long alienation due to their mother/Bobby's wife conflict
