Chelsea boss Antonio Conte: 'David Luiz working hard to return'

Gary Cahill of Chelsea confronts the linesman during the Premier League match between Southampton and Chelsea at St Mary's Stadium

Antonio Conte is set to select Gary Cahill for Chelsea's remaining matches this season in order to give him every chance of forcing his way back into the England reckoning ahead of the World Cup.

Chelsea outcast David Luiz may not play for Chelsea again this season, Blues head coach Antonio Conte admitted as he revealed the Brazilian defender is still struggling with a knee injury that has been bothering him all season. He's in good physical condition.

Conte's greatest gripe with the Blues hierarchy is his lack of energy relating to the membership's switch enterprise; Chelsea failing to pursue quite a few his most well-liked choices throughout his reign on the membership.

Luiz has not featured since February 5 and while Conte has said that the player continues to "work hard", participating in a game before the end of the campaign remains uncertain.




Luiz held a big birthday bash in London earlier this week to celebrate turning 31, which was attended by several of the Chelsea players.

'I know when you have to go to play a World Cup or European Championship, it's important to have players with great experience because the pressure will become very strong for everyone.

The Russian businessman has taken extra of a hands-on roll with the membership in current months and can take an energetic position on who replaces Conte forward of subsequent season. I think we are talking about an important player for the national team. "I think Gary deserves to play".

"I realise the manager has decisions to make".
