Love for Blues Made Me Return, Says David Luiz


Brazil defender David Luiz is overjoyed to be back for a second spell at Chelsea after leaving Paris St Germain on transfer deadline day.

The 29-year-old, who quit Stamford Bridge for Paris two years ago, has returned for a fee that media reports put at £34 million.

Luiz won the Champions League, Europa League and FA Cup in his three years at Chelsea after joining from Benfica in 2011.

“It’s fantastic to have this second opportunity to play for this club. I love this club, that’s why I am here,” Luiz told

“It will be an amazing opportunity to show the fans again how I love this club. I cannot wait to wear the shirt and play at Stamford Bridge again.”

Luiz, who won two consecutive Ligue 1 crowns with PSG, said he wanted to fight for more trophies with Chelsea.
“Of course I want to win the Premier League and of course I want to win all the titles again,” he added.

“I am here because I have ambition to play for a big club and when you play for a big club you need to think about winning every single match.”
Luiz could feature in Chelsea’s next game at Swansea City on September 11.
