Mikel Arteta states the sources who leaked a story about an incident between Dani Ceballos and David Luiz will face the “consequences”.
The Arsenal coach, Mikel Arteta has warned there will be repercussions for the person who leaked details of a training ground fight between David Luiz and Dani Ceballos.
It had occurred Luiz and Ceballos clashed in the training ground eight days ago. The two needed to be pulled apart by manager Arteta after a challenge from the latter sparked the bust-up.
Luiz lashed out at the on-loan Ceballos and left the Spaniard on the ground with scratches on his nose. As he rose to his feet to confront Luiz, Arsenal players and staff stepped on to diffuse the situation.
The manager is currently on the hunt for a mole in his Arsenal camp. Moreover, he feels the revelation undermines the culture and unity he is trying to create at the Emirates Stadium.
“I don’t like the fact the incident came out at all”. Said Arteta.
“And I will find out where it is coming from. If that is the case, that completely goes against what I expect from each other, the privacy and the confidentiality that we need and there will be consequences”.
“Whether it is a coincidence or not, it doesn’t change things much. It is just the competitive levels that we demand and the standards that we want to set. But obviously, it is a very thin line where it is a competitive issue and where it goes somewhere else that we don’t support and we don’t want”.
It is henceforth understood Luiz and Ceballos have apologized to each other as Arteta now insists there is “no problem at all” between the pair.
