Athletic Bilbao's Spanish striker Fernando Llorente has stormed out of training after a dispute with coach Marcelo Bielsa, it has been reported.
"Llorente left the training pitch unexpectedly after a conversation with Marcelo Bielsa who didn't seem satisfied with the striker's performance during the morning session," the sports daily Marca reported on Monday.
There have been increasing tensions between the Argentinian coach and the 27-year-old Llorente, who has announced that he will not renew his contract with the Basque club at the end of the season.
Since then Llorente has played rarely for the club which lost its Basque derby on Saturday to Real Sociedad, with the striker coming on as a substitute after 65 minutes.
The club is currently just one point above the drop zone with just five points from six matches.
Real Sociedad coach Philippe Montanier is to leave the Primera Division side at the end of the season after turning down a contract extension, the Basque club has confirmed.
