David Luiz Available for Atletico Game, Confirms Conte
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has revealed that David Luiz will be fit for Wednesday night’s Champions League tie with Atletico Madrid in Spain.
The Brazilian broke his wrist after colliding with an advertising hoarding in the 0-0 draw with Arsenal just over a week ago. The player was later red carded in the game.
He is currently suspended for domestic games, but not for European competition. Conte has revealed that the wrist injury will not prevent him from playing in Madrid.
“David is an important player for us, he is a generous player and is always available. This type of injury won’t stop him tomorrow. He is in contention for the game, no problem,” he told the pre-match press conference.
