Image: Conte’s Chelsea outcast predicted his own downfall years ago

Chelsea fans here in the Tavern have had their laugh for the week, as a dip into the past drags up a rather ironic act of kindness. 

Stamford Bridge has been a very hostile place this season, having seen their team lose 3 games already in what is only a quarter of the way through. Many of these flaws have been on the defensive front, with rifts, inconsistency and arguments causing the downfall.

One main reason for this is down to the fact that David Luiz and Conte haven’t exactly seen eye to eye this season, as a rift with being substituted and lack of game time has seen a falling out between the two. When asked if David Luiz has a future at the club after their game at the weekend he said: “I don’t know. He has to work really hard, otherwise he will be on the bench or in the stands. I must make the best decision for the club, not for a single player. Christensen is the present and future for Chelsea.”

This sparked absolute hilarity and ironic gestures as Chelsea fanatics pulled up a bit of brilliance from the past..

Back in 2013 the Brazilian took to Instagram to post a very kind message, fond of fellow teammate Christensen. An upload that saw a picture of the two of them in the changing rooms, as Luiz praises that the Danish youngster will have a great future with the club.

He definitely will have a great future! My friend @ac_1996 ! #NYC #MatchTime #Goodluck

This turned out to be an absolute nightmare for Luiz as we see his kind remarks come back to haunt him, as Andreas Christensen continues to be the nuisance that is causing the Brazilian’s Chelsea career to be brought to a halt.

After watching from the stands in their recent win over Manchester United, you cannot help but feel that it’s only a matter of time before the Dane pushes him towards the exits.

So Chelsea fans, thoughts?
