Arteta plays-down importance of Ceballos-Luiz bust-up

The Arsenal manager was anxious to pour cold water on the incident stating that "training is very competitive and issues happen a lot of times.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta was asked about the training ground bust-up between Spaniard Dani Ceballos and defender David Luiz after a source leaded the story about the training ground clash.

The Athletic reported how both players squared up after after a rough challenge by Ceballos in a practice game with the Brazilian allegedly drawing blood from his team-mate in the subsequent incident.

Upon being questioned about the incident, Arsenal boss Arteta said: "Training is very competitive and issues happen a lot of times. Those things get resolved immediately within the team and there is not much to say. There is no problem at all."
