Frustrated Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has vowed that there will be consequences for the mole who has leaked the information regarding the reported training ground bust-up between Dani Ceballos and David Luiz during the International break.
Spanish midfielder immediately took to social media to deny the incident reported by The Athletic and labeled it as fake. But Arteta has now admitted that there was a clash although he insists there is no problem at all between the pair.
Mikel Arteta is far from happy that details of the fight emerged in the first place and will now investigate exactly how the information was leaked out to the media.
Speaking ahead of Arsenal’s trip to Elland Road, Mikel Arteta expressed his thoughts on the incident.
“I don’t like the fact that that incident comes out at all ”. “I will find out where it is coming from.
”That goes completely against what I expect from each other. The privacy and the confidentiality that we need and there will be consequences.”– Mikel Arteta
Dani Ceballos has been dropped to the bench since the arrival of Thomas Partey at Emirates stadium. Partey and Mohamed Elneny have formed a good midfield partnership in centre of the field.
Since the start of the season, this is the second incident that Dani Ceballos has been involved in. He was also caught on camera clashing with youngster Eddie Nketiah in the warm-up ahead of Arsenal’s game at Fulham.
When asked whether it was just coincidental that Ceballos has been involved in a clash with a team-mate again, Arteta stated:
“Well, whether it’s a coincidence or not it doesn’t change things much. It’s just the competitive levels that we demand and the standards we want to set.– Mikel Arteta
The Gunners are struggling with consistency this season, with just 12 points from opening 8 league fixtures. Community Shield winners are facing Leeds United in their next fixture on Sunday evening.
