As per London Evening Standard, Chelsea defender David Luiz will not kick a ball for the team again until he proves he is fully committed to the course of the West London club.
The central half was dropped to the stands when the Blues faced Manchester United last weekend, forcing the Brazilian to watch the game from the stands as a mere spectator instead of contributing to his teammate’s fight for the maximum three points they gathered on Sunday.
In Luiz place on Sunday, youngster Andreas Christensen took the chance with both hands, marking down Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku easily and crashing United’s attack throughout the match.
It’s been reported that Conte will demand that the Brazilian proves his absolute commitment to the team irrespective of what happens, especially as the Brazilian reportedly questioned Antonio Conte’s tactics after the 3-0 loss at AS Roma. David Luiz may need to apologize to Antonio Conte also before he’s allowed back to the first team.
The 30-year old former PSG defender is not part of the Blues contingent called up to represent their respective National sides and will remain with manager Antonio Conte at the club’s Cobham training ground to train with the rest for the upcoming matches in the English Premier League and UEFA Champions League in two weeks time.
