He was left on the bench for the Premier League return against Manchester City last Wednesday, but was called into action after an injury to Pablo Mari and went on to concede a penalty and be sent off.
Former Arsenal star Perry Groves feels extending David Luiz’s contract at the club would be a big mistake and has urged Mikel Arteta to let the Brazilian leave at the end of the season.
His contract at Arsenal was for just 12 months, but the club have the option to extend it for a further season if they want, something that Groves suggests would be a terrible idea.
The 33-year-old arrived at Arsenal from Chelsea last summer and has had, at best, a mixed time in north London.
The Brazilian has now conceded four penalties in his single season with the Gunners as he continually proves to be a liability in the defence.
After Luiz’s calamitous performance against City, which also saw Luiz make a substantial error to allow Raheem Sterling score the first goal of the game, Arteta defended his man.
Luiz missed Arsenal’s defeat to Brighton on Saturday and will also sit out the trip to Southampton on Thursday through suspension, but will be available again when Norwich visit the Emirates on 1 July.
The 55-year-old, who won two top flight titles with Arsenal, feels handing Luiz an extension would invite pressure and criticism from fans on the manager after the defender has proved he is not to be up to the job.
