Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta has spoken for the first first in regard to a fight between Dani Ceballos and David Luiz during training.
The Spaniard confirmed that it is normal for players to disagree during training and the matter is usually solved immediately.
He was speaking after reports emerged that Dani Ceballos sustained a nose injury during the fight something that he himself denied terming it fake.

“Exclusive: Tensions boiled over in Arsenal training Fri as Luiz hit Ceballos on nose, with scratch drawing blood. When squad returned Tue both apologised + group have continued as normal. #AFC will hope fighting spirit is channeled positively!” said David Ornstein.
Arteta who was again quizzed on the matter jokingly admitted to having a poor eyesight thus the use of indoor training.
Both Ceballos and Luiz were left out of their teams international games as other first team players absent due to internation duties.
