Maurizio Sarri: Chelsea manager did not storm out of the training ground because of the argument between Gonzalo Higuain and David Luiz.

Recently, it was widely circulated that Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri stormed out of the training ground just 24-hours before the Europa league finale against Arsenal.

It was claimed that the Italian manager left the ground after allegedly being disturbed by a heated argument between Gonzalo Higuain and David Luiz.

Obviously, this move by Sarri did not go well with Chelsea, as the club is already surrounded by various speculations from media amidst massive uncertainty in the club.

Additionally, this instance just few hours before the finale does not seem to be appropriate as both the teams have a lot at stake ahead of this match.

However, on the the other hand, thing are not as bad as it seems, according to a claim by ESPN journalist, Liam Twomey has said that Maurizio Sarri did not leave the pitch because of Higuain and Luiz.

Instead, it is claimed that he left due to not being able to practice set-plays in the final 15 minutes of the hour-long training session as it remained open to media.

Thus, it seems that it is just another story exaggerated by the media and is not as controversial as it is projected. Additionally, possibility of the Italian manager leaving Chelsea this summer also fueled this moment to be on the headlines.

Nevertheless, if the above report is true then it would be a huge relief to Chelsea, as they dealt with a tough campaign this season amid all the chaos. Thus, this rumour buster would help Chelsea to prepare for tomorrow’s match against the Gunners.
