With media and reporting now becoming a part-time job for the every man on the street with a smartphone, more and more insight is gained into the relationships and lives of footballers.
No matter what your profession or status, it's practically guaranteed that at some point in your life you've had a serious disagreement with your manager.
You may have reacted angrily, you may have shouted at each other or you may have thought something nasty but remained tight-lipped for fear of being sacked.
Whichever of those scenarios encompassed your persona, you can rest assured that footballers are no different.
Here we'll take a look at some of the more famous bust-ups between players and managers that have been documented over the years.
I hope you enjoy and Merry Christmas.
