Chelsea ended last season on the high, finishing third in the Premier League and winning the Europa League title by beating Arsenal 4-1.

To achieve this, the players pushed themselves hard in training as the season reached its conclusion.

Chelsea defender David Luiz has revealed Robert Green was the best player in training towards the end of last season.

When asked who the best player in training was towards the end of last season, Luiz told Chelsea’s official website: “Robert Green. Because to see the passion he had for training after a long career knowing already he was going to retire and did not play one game in the season, but having the same passion, was for me someone to admire.”

Robert Green retired after the end of last season.

Announcing his retirement from football, Green said: “Following an incredible evening in Baku on Wednesday and after a  23 year career spanning three decades, I’ve decided that it is the right time to retire from professional football.

“Being part of the group and celebrations with such a special squad of players after winning the Europa League seems a fitting way to end what’s been an amazing journey for me in the game.

“I’ve loved every moment and feel privileged to have enjoyed the career I have. I’ve played with, and against, some of the best players in the world and have experienced so much that professional football has to offer.”

He continued: “Looking forward I’m excited about what the future has to offer. I hope to remain connected with the game that’s given me so much in some capacity, whatever that proves to be, but for now I’m just looking forward to having my first summer off in 23 years. Thanks for the memories.”
