Arsenal in training bust-up with David Luiz ‘hitting Dani Ceballos on the nose and drawing blood’

News of a fiery altercation at Arsenal training has emerged with David Luiz reportedly hitting team-mate Dani Ceballos in the face, drawing blood from the midfielder. 

The Brazilian defender took exception to a tackle from the Spaniard at the end of a squad practice match last week, striking Ceballos on the nose and sending him to the ground. 

A report in The Athletic reveals that Ceballos quickly rose to his feet before both players were separated by staff and team-mates – the pair were sent home from training last Friday, which took place with members of the first-team squad not on international duty.

However, after three days off, the pair apologised to their team-mates for the altercation this week and training has resumed with no issue. 

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta asked both players into the dressing room to clear the air. 

It is not the first time this season Ceballos, on loan from Real Madrid for the second season running, has been involved in a confrontation with one of his team-mates. 

Before their Premier League opener at Fulham, Ceballos faced up to fellow substitute Eddie Nketiah during a drill in the warm-up. 

The row came just five days after the Gunners’ shock 3-0 defeat at home to Aston Villa, in which Ceballos came on as a replacement but Luiz was an unused substitute.
