Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright believes Chelsea defender David Luiz will leave Chelsea if Antonio Conte stays on as Chelsea manager.
The Brazilian defender was dropped by Conte for the game against Manchester United on Sunday and reports in the days building up to the game suggested Luiz had a bust-up with Conte.
“By the time next season kicks off, I’m sure that either Antonio Conte or David Luiz will have left Chelsea,” Wright told The Sun.
“Personally, I don’t believe Conte will still be in West London this time next year — you can tell by his demeanour that something is wrong.
“I’d be happy to eat humble pie if I’m wrong — and there’s part of me that will be pleased if I am because I’ve a lot of respect for the guy.
“But if he does cling on to his job in West London then it’s hard to see Luiz being part of his plans.
“I don’t see the Brazilian being the kind of guy who will be happy to sit on the bench or in the stands.
“And it could very quickly become another problem for Conte if he does.”
