Bayern Munich Bixente Lizarazu faces a fine from his club after he was involved in a training gorund brawl with team mate Niko Kovac.

Bayerncoach Ottmar Hitzfeld confirmed that he would be fining Lizarazu.

“He lost control of himself and there will be a fine for that,” Hitzfeld said.

However, in a month which has seenBayern knocked out of the Champions League and their players criticised for their poor attitude, Hitzfeld was able to take some comfort from the fact that there weere still signs of life at the club.

“It proves that the team are alive,” he added.

Despite the disappointing Champions League exit, Bayern still top the Bundesliga. On Saturday, they face a top-of-the-table clash with reigning champions Borussia Dortmund.
