The pair are said to have endured a heated argument during the break of their 2-1 defeat to the Reds following a defensive mixup that allowed Jordan Henderson to give the home side the lead.
They were then left out of the side for the following game against Leicester, sparking more rumours that the fallout was worse than first expected.
However, the Brazilian has spoken out against the speculation, claiming they merely had a ‘conversation’.
“People are creating and telling stories, even though it didn’t happen that way,” the 29-year-old said.
“It was nothing major. There were other people around us, and you have to raise your voice a little bit. There was no fight, just a conversation.
“There was a conversation, and not much more than that. I don’t know why people actually thought there was a fight – we spoke about how we could improve things in that match.
“I don’t have anything bad to say about Vinny. He is a great player, a great team member, and I have always liked him.
“Myself and Vinny spoke about it that day, and everything was settled on that day. It was finished. It’s very weird that this story actually came up; for something so small to suddenly become so big.”
