Twit Luiz grovels after Frank brat swipe
The Chelsea ace said Lamps should stop moaning about Andre Villas-Boas. Brazil centre-back Luiz was scathing when asked directly about Lampard’s relationship with his manager.
He told Portuguese paper O Jogo: “In a football club, nobody has to be a parent or child of anyone. there are no privileged people here.
“He must stick to listening to the boss’ orders and accept them. no player can forget he’s just an employee.”
But Luiz yesterday posted on Twitter that he was speaking generally about the Chelsea situation. AVB is fighting a constant battle to keep Chelsea stars onside after a Champions League bust-up with Lampard and Ashley Cole in Naples last week.
IN THE FIRING LINE … Frank Lampard
But Blues chiefs were at pains to point out that Luiz has no issue.
They circulated the tweet from Luiz which read: “This is media, Frank know me, and I never said about him! I said generally! I only talked about coaches and players in general. always CFC.”
Luiz’s blast has only highlighted the massive cracks which are appearing in the manager’s nightmare reign.
The Portuguese held a crisis meeting after a defeat at Everton three weeks ago which saw Lampard and Cole hit out at the Blues boss.
Midfielder Lampard has found it tough being a bit-part player under AVB and is not happy.
But Luiz urged all of Chelsea’s stars to unite and back Villas-Boas.
He added: “Andre has immense ability. I’m sure we’ll have a great future.”
