“I was surprised because it’s not common to see,” he said in his press conference on Friday. “At the start, I didn’t like that.

“Then I understood what happened and the level of frustration. I really like the way everything was resolved.

“You can see the way they came on how committed they were. How much they wanted to play.

“I don’t want them to kill each other but it’s okay.”

The incident came about when Ceballos put a strong challenge in on Nketiah ahead of the game, which neither player started.

But the Spaniard posted a picture with his teammate after the game, writing: “No problem here my brother.”
