A mistake in Chelsea’s Super Cup programme saw Frank Lampard label David Luiz a “hugely important” player, despite him now playing for Arsenal.

There were honest conversations.



Luiz was reportedly refusing to train before he left the club, but the Chelsea manager denied this.



The centre-back left Stamford Bridge in an £8million deal on transfer deadline day.

Lampard revealed that “honest conversations” between himself and former team-mate Luiz led to his exit from Stamford Bridge.

In his programme notes, Lampard praised the Brazilian, hailing him as a crucial member of the squad along with captain Cesar Azpilicueta.

“But that was not a strike, or a punishment, or being ostracised at all.” Luiz will be hoping to make his debut for Arsenal against Burnley in the early kickoff on Saturday.
