David Luiz has pulled back the curtain a little on the work the Arsenal players are doing during this period of self-isolation.
Last week, Mikel Arteta revealed he’d been giving his Gunners ‘homework’, as well as the physical exercises they need to do to maintain some measure of physical fitness.
The centre-half spoke to ESPN Brasil, and likened it to being back in school.
“We have been given assignments just like in school and at university,” said Luiz.
“I spent an hour and a half on a video call with Arteta, analysing games and training sessions from this season.
“‘Tell me about this game without watching it, David,’ he would say. Afterwards we would watch and see we were tying to do something good, but couldn’t execute it, or we thought it was bad, but in this case good.
“This discussion is good and will help us a lot in the future.”
He also touched on the fear the squad had when Arteta was diagnosed with Covid-19, saying, “We were scared. The day he tested positive, we were sad, scared and stayed in our homes.
“It was a huge warning for us to have someone so close to us.”
Meanwhile, Arsenal have released an update regarding executive salaries, player wage cuts, tickets and more – find out more here.
