“Shots at Alonso” – Chelsea fans find hidden message in David Luiz comments

Chelsea fans on Twitter believe they have found a hidden message in David Luiz’s recent press conference comments, with Marcos Alonso thought to be the recipient of the Brazilian’s underlying criticism.

The centre-back joined manager Maurizio Sarri and captain Cesar Azpilicueta in speaking to the media before the Blues’ Europa League final clash with Arsenal on Wednesday in Baku.

When asked about Sarri’s improvement of the Chelsea squad, Luiz answered: “If you are intelligent, you can adapt and understand the moments. If you are not intelligent, then you never change.”

After playing just ten Premier League matches last season under Antonio Conte, Luiz made 36 appearances this campaign earning a one-year contract extension with the west London club in the process.

Although the 32-year old’s comments don’t single out any one player in particular, many Chelsea fans on Twitter feel that the criticism is directed at Alonso after the left-back recently went public over his issues with Sarri.
