Hiddink: Oscar, Diego Costa clash '2 bulls chesting a bit'

LONDON: Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink has described a training-ground clash between Oscar and Diego Costa as "two bulls who were chesting a bit."

Commenting on an incident that was widely reported in British media on Friday, Hiddink says the two players squared up to each other after Oscar tackled Costa from behind during training on Thursday, and needed to be separated.

The Dutch coach says that "they stumbled over the ground, stood up as a normal reaction and then chested a bit without any further seriousness of threat of punching or whatever."

Hiddink says Oscar apologized in front of the squad, and that Oscar and Costa "looked at each other and started laughing."
