Fabregas was asked to leave Spain's training

New Chelsea signing Cesc Fabregas has been involved in a training ground row with Spain coach Vicente del Bosque. Tensions were high in the camp after defeats by Holland and Chile dumped the reigning champions out of the World Cup early and things came to a head on Saturday. Del Bosque was unimpressed with Fabregas' attitude in training and the low intensity he was operating at. After a while, enough was enough, and Del Bosque ordered Fabregas to give his bib to Xabi Alonso and leave the session. The former Arsenal and Barcelona star reluctantly did so, with team-mates stopping him from arguing further with Del Bosque. The 27-year-old's sum total of minutes so far in the World Cup is 12.
