Werder Bremen Suspend Carlos Alberto After Training Ground Bust-up

Werder Bremen have suspended Brazilian forward Carlos Alberto for three days after he came to blows with Boubacar Sanogo in a training session yesterday.

Bremen manager Thomas Schaaf said:

"The players are an example for the population. We have to talk about this and resolve the situation, but a player who has an attitude like this needs to think about the consequences."

Despite the current injury crisis at the club, Schaaf believes that they could not ignore the incident:

"We are taking this measure despite the injuries, but we cannot accept this type of behaviour."

This is not the first time Carlos Alberto has caused trouble at a club. He famously fell out with Corinthians manager Emerson Leão in 2006 and refused to play for the club whilst Leão was in charge. This eventually lead to his move to Bremen this summer for a reported 7.8million Euros.

So far this season, Carlos Alberto has only made three appearances for his new club and is yet to get on the scoresheet.
