Chelsea defender David Luiz has suffered yet another frustration after sustaining a knock while training, the Mirror claims.
Various pictures have emerged in the claims showing the Brazil international requiring treatment during training at the club’s Cobham base. The extent of the injury is still unclear.
Players such as David Luiz and summer signing Danny Drinkwater have been at Chelsea’s training facilities keeping fit while some of his colleagues are away on international assignment.
This development comes as a major blow to the former PSG star after he saw his long-term playing future at the West London club thrown into major doubt after being left out of the team against Premier League rivals Manchester United.
The strong defender was made to watch from the stands with spectators as his teammates took the maximum three points at Stamford Bridge against Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte said the decision to drop the centre-half out of the team was tactical but later claimed that the Brazil international needs to work hard as his colleague to get back into the side.
Various media reports have linked the ‘fall-out’ between David Luiz and Antonio Conte to the Brazilian’s friendship with Spain striker and former teammate Diego Costa, but that does not look to be the main source of the problem at hand.
