Arsenal signing David Luiz: Chelsea staff in tears

Arsenal signing David Luiz admits his departure from Chelsea left some staff in tears.

The Brazil international made a surprise switch across the capital on deadline day, joining the Gunners from the Blues in a deal worth a reported £8m

It seems Luiz's departure left the Blues head of medical Paco Biosca in tears, such was the friendship the pair had struck up during their time together at Stamford Bridge.

In a clip captured by Arsenal's media team, the Brazilian was seen telling the Gunners' medical director Gary O'Driscoll: "Paco's amazing. He's crying, he's crying.

"He called me crying.

"I have a great, great relationship with him."
