Maurizio Sarri Goes Mental After Higuain And Luiz Have Training Ground Spat

In what looks like the worst possible preparation ahead of a final, Chelsea's training session in Baku saw a coming together between Gonzalo Higuain and David Luiz - prompting manager Maurizio Sarri to storm off furiously.

BT Sport cameras at the Olympic Stadium picked up the spat, which appeared to stem from Higuain going in late on Luiz.

It didn't actually look that heated but not long after we see Sarri going utterly mental. He walked off angrily, threw his hat to the ground twice, booted it and then stormed down the tunnel before the session had finished.


With reports that Pedro was injured in the training session and N'Golo Kante a doubt at this point, things aren't exactly looking great for Chelsea just a day before the big all-English final with Arsenal.

We're yet to confirm the exact number of cigarettes Sarri has smoked following this incident but we do have it on good authority that Kepa Arrizabalaga took charge of the rest of the session.

After all, it wouldn't be the first time..
