Chelsea will never regret,Lampard sent a clear message to Luiz by showing him the door:Gunners legend Petit.

Chelsea will not regret selling David Luiz to London rivals Arsenal, according to Gunners legend Emmanuel Petit.

The Brazilian joined the north London club on deadline day for £8 million ($9.7m) after the defender went on strike just prior to the close of the window in hopes of forcing a move.

“The fact that David Luiz left the club the way he did tells me that Lampard told him he was not going to feature regularly in his team,” Petit told Paddy Power.

“Luiz is 32 years old, and Lampard knows what he’s like as a player and was fine with showing him the door – I don’t think that’s the issue here.”

The Frenchman, who also spent three seasons at Stamford Bridge, is confident Chelsea will be fine and admitted he thinks they should have moved the 32-year-old on sooner.

“For me, it should have been done earlier and that’s the problem. I’m not very happy seeing players moving clubs when the competitions are starting, it just causes trouble.

“But for me, Lampard sent a clear message to Luiz by showing him the door, that he is not his priority, so I doubt he regrets his decision.”
