A video of a Chelsea fan punching on David Luiz poster outside Stamford Bridge over his move to London rivals has emerged.
David Luiz’s move to the Emirates was a bit controversial, and the Blues fan was clearly not happy with the Brazilian defender’s decision.
A Chelsea fan was captured on camera striking a poster of the center-back outside Stamford Bridge during Sky Sports’ coverage of Deadline Day in the summer of 2019 before the Luiz move was finalized.
No, we’re not joking and the evidence is available for you to check out below…

Luiz stated why he joined one of Chelsea’s biggest rivals, Arsenal, shortly after his move was finalised, saying that he and his manager at the time, Frank Lampard, had a “honest conversation” about it.
“I always liked Chelsea, no doubt,” Luiz said. “I saw a possibility of writing a new story in a new place, but I am forever grateful to Chelsea, to all people, to friendships that are for life.
“It was an individual decision made through honest conversation – between me and Frank Lampard, no one else.
“We had a different idea of the future of the game and that’s why I chose to take a new path.
“It’s always very difficult because of the rivalry, but I made the decision to leave Chelsea even before receiving Arsenal’s bid.
“As soon as I decided to leave Chelsea – after a few days – Arsenal’s proposal came, and as it was another great club, I didn’t think twice.”
Luiz played two years at Arsenal, where he was instrumental in the team’s FA Cup victory in 2019/20. After the Gunners declined to offer him a new contract, he moved to his native Brazil in the summer of 2021, signing Flamengo.
