Yesterday must have been the official unveiling of David Luiz as a Paris St Germaine player.

Paraded in front of the cameras, the Brazilian international, as you`d expect, had plenty to say for himself.

Amongst the many subjects the player covered was the fact that Chelsea Football Club were prepared to sell him and also let Frank Lampard go.

This is what David Luiz had to say,

“I have to believe Chelsea or any other team will miss me. I`m not arrogant but I`m confident in my own abilities”

“Paris paid a lot for me so they obviously believe in me – it is nice to be at a club where they really want you and where they show belief in you.”


Do I detect a massive dig aimed in the direction of Jose Mourinho there?

Continuing though, David Luiz spoke about Frank not being part of the Stamford Bridge furniture anymore, further adding,

“I can only speak about my experience of playing with Frank and I still think he has lots to offer at the highest level.”

“Not just because he is a great player – but also because of his experience in big games.”


Points that we`ve debated many times before, but, continuing, David Luiz then went on to speak about silverware, commenting,

“I have as much chance of winning major trophies here as at Chelsea or any other club in Europe.”

From were I sit the only major trophy worth mentioning is the Champions League, considering La Ligue is hardly on a par with the Premier League, Serie A, La Liga or the Bundesliga.

But we must never forget, David Luiz was an integral part of that memorable night in the Allianz Arena, who`ll ever forget the stoic defending and that marvellous penalty in the shoot-out, it`s a night David Luiz remembers well and wants a repeat of, with the Brazilian finishing with,

“I have good memories of Chelsea. I won the Champions League.”

“I hope it is not my only victory. I believe I can win it again with Paris.”


Is that an ambition you, the Vital Chelsea membership, can see being realized, or is it just a pipe-dream?
