Shefki Kuqi talks about the training-ground bust-up with Cheick Tiote. United’s flying Finn apparently aimed an elbow at Tiote and wrestling with him. :Shefki Kuqi “On Monday I took a phone call from a guy who works for the Sun. “He used to work for the local paper in Croydon when I played for Palace. “He said there was a photo going in the paper of Cheick and I. “He said it was me elbowing Cheick in the face – he just wanted to warn me about it. “He asked what was the problem with me and him, was I fighting him? “I just laughed! It was not me fighting him, we were having fun. “Cheick is a strong lad, I am always playing games with him, pushing him and things like this. “We say to each other ‘ I will kick you today, I will get you’ – he is that kind of lad. “On Monday he was very good in training, but when we were lining up for a drill Pete (Lovenkrands) pushed him on one side I pushed him on the other. I told him: ‘It is a Cheick sandwich!’ “It was just a bit of fun, the papers had the wrong idea. “I love Cheick. He works hard, works for everything and wants to make the most of his chance.”
