Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard says he does not harbour any negative feelings towards David Luiz after he pushed to leave the club to join Arsenal

Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard says he will always respect Arsenal defender David Luiz despite making the decision to let him leave in the summer.

Luiz joined Arsenal on a two-year deal for £8m in the summer transfer window after two spells at Chelsea.

He was also a team-mate of Lampard in the Chelsea side which won the Champions League in 2012.

The Brazilian was made to train away from Lampard’s first team after indicating he wanted to leave the club in August.

After initially dodging questions on his relationship with Luiz, Lampard said: “Maybe I was a bit harsh not to answer [original question] directly. What I don’t want to do is make it a personal question going into a game against a player who I respect and played with.
