BRATISLAVA, May 2 (Reuters) - The European Central Bank's decisionmakers were split over whether to cut or hold interest rates, its head, Mario Draghi, implied on Thursday.

"There was a very, very strong consensus towards an interest rate cut," Draghi told a news conference.

The ECB uses the term consensus when a decision is not unanimous.

He said that within that consensus there was a prevailing consensus towards 25 basis points.
