REVEALED: Lampard ripped into Luiz before Chelsea sale

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard ripped into David Luiz before he left for Arsenal, it has been revealed.

The 32-year-old was allowed to join the Gunners on deadline day after the Brazilian centre-back was deemed surplus to requirements.

Luiz failed to prove his worth to Lampard during the 5-3 win against Red Bull Salzburg last month.

The Independent says Lampard gave Luiz a "b******ing* over his display, which created a tension between the two men.

They state that both Lampard and the former Paris Saint-Germain star were happy to part ways with Luiz finally joining the North Londoners - two years after a proposed move fell through.
