Title contenders Chelsea were beaten 2-0 at Newcastle on Saturday and David Luiz was made the scapegoat after another underwhelming performance.
The enigmatic Brazilian defender tried too many Hollywood passes and didn’t show 100% commitment when putting in tackles.
According to tomorrow’s Daily Star Jose Mourinho has had enough and David Luiz will not feature in Chelsea’s Champions League match against Schalke.
Teammates are reported to have criticised the centre back in the dressing room regarding his poor attitude.
Gary Cahill and John Terry are expected to start midweek and Mourinho is in no hurry to bring David Luiz back.
Having broken into the Brazil XI, David Luiz will surely be desperate to be a starter once again at Stamford Bridge.
