Chelsea star is happy despite transfer rumours

Chelsea coach and ambassador Tore Andre Flo says speculation surrounding the future of David Luiz is not true, insisting that the defender is ‘very happy’ at the club.

The Brazil international, who has been out injured for weeks, has had speculation surrounding his future ever since Chelsea’s 3-0 defeat to Roma – where it was believed he had a falling-out with head coach Antonio Conte.

However, Flo has denied rumours of a potential transfer away from Stamford Bridge, saying: “He looks very happy to me.

“He’s a very lively player and to me there doesn’t seem to be any problems at all.

“He is injured for the moment, so I don’t really understand all this stuff going on in the press. To me, it’s just a player who for the moment is injured and seems to be very happy at the club.”

As well as currently working for Chelsea, Tore Andre Flo also played for the club over 100 times during his playing career. He had a few words to say on new signing Alvaro Morata too, saying he has been impressed with the start to life he has made at the club.

“I’m really impressed with him. When I see him play he makes smart movements and he’s a good finisher – even with the head, which is nice to see nowadays.

“Where he’s got to learn is probably in the build-up play, which is tougher in the Premier League than what he has been playing in before.

“A bit to learn, but as soon as the ball comes into the box, he’s been very good. I would give him a bit more time, and I think he will be even better.”
