David Luiz reveals what Lampard told him before he left Chelsea for Arsenal

David Luiz has said he left Chelsea after Blues boss, Frank Lampard, told him he has “different ideas” ahead of the new season.

The 32-year-old completed an £8million move to Arsenal on transfer deadline day.

Luiz brought a close to his second spell at Stamford Bridge, signing a two-year deal in North London and admits he simply didn’t fit into Lampard’s plans.

Speaking after making his debut in Arsenal’s 2-1 Premier League win over Burnley, Luiz told ESPN Brasil: “It was a great pleasure.

“It is a new challenge in my career, where I took the decision to fight for new things and I enjoyed it in the best way possible.
