Marcelo Brozovic was involved in a heated dispute with his teammate, former Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte, ahead of Al-Nassr’s Asian Champions League clash on Wednesday.
The Croatian was caught on camera saying something to Laporte, while another teammate, Ali Lajami, acted as a peacemaker pushing the midfielder.
Brozovic then turned around, forcing a staff member to stand between him and Lajami to prevent emotions from boiling over.
The former Inter Milan star joined the Saudi club last summer, along with Laporte, who left the Etihad after their treble.
Al-Nassr was looking to advance to the quarterfinals against Al-Fayha, also from the Saudi Pro League.
