David Luiz fears Conte is punishing him for Costa friendship

David Luiz fears Conte is punishing him for Costa friendship

The 30-year-old Brazil worldwide fears for his future at the club and believes his relationship with Costa could be used against him as Luiz tried to act as peacemaker between Conte and the Spain global over the summer.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte insists David Luiz's omission for the win over Manchester United on Sunday was purely tactical.

Despite Conte's insistence that the decision was tactical, it is understood the axe came after Luiz questioned the Italian in training last week.

The Brazil worldwide did not even make the bench as Andreas Christensen was handed a start, with rumours of a rift with Conte being the reason for his omission circulating around social media. Very simple. The coach has to make the best decision for the team, and tonight the best decision for the team was to play with Christensen and to have, on the bench, [Ethan] Ampadu.

Trump also has called for eliminating the 1990s visa lottery program that Saipov used to come to the U.S.in 2010. Saipov worked as a truck driver, and for the ride-sharing companies Uber and Lyft in recent years.

That is part of the renewal Conte seems to be rolling-out in his side right now: he told us again after United about the plummeting average age of the team. If I see they are not in good form, it's normal.

Wilkins, who also represented Manchester United during his playing career, believes Luiz would be better employed as a midfielder but feels he is too much of a liability at the back. It's normal. I repeat: I have to put my face in every situation, and then to sometimes make important decisions.

' I played a training match this week and there was a sign that I would start, and it was confirmed last Friday, so I had a long time to prepare'. I was very happy for this. "I have to make the best decision for the team".

The calls for the young Dane to replace Gary Cahill in the starting XI have missed the point that Conte doesn't see the 21-year-old that sort of player.
