Chelsea boss Frank Lampard insists David Luiz didn't leave for Arsenal on bad terms
Adebowale|Aug. 09, 2019
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard says he did not fall out with David Luiz before the player's transfer to London rivals Arsenal.
Brazilian defender Luiz completed a deadline-day move to the Gunners for £7million.
The 32-year-old spent seven years across two spells with the Blues, winning six major trophies, including the Premier League and Champions League.
'David's obviously left. We'd had some conversations over the last week. It's an area of the pitch where I have competition,' said Lampard.
'He's moved on. I, and we as club, certainly wish him the best. There certainly wasn't any strikes. And in terms of fall-outs, no.
'The day that David didn't train was a decision I made. It was just probably what worked for that day.'
