According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea defender David Luiz has gone on to join fellow teammate Willian in criticising the former Blues manager Antonio Conte. The Brazilian, who has started all the matches under the new manager Maurizio Sarri so far this season, was left out of the squad for a good part of the last season by Conte.

The 31-year-old rejoined the west London club two seasons ago and had played a very important role in the defence to help them win the Premier League title in the 2016/17 season. However, last season he started only nine matches under the tutelage of Conte, even though the Italian manager went in with three defenders in the backline.

In a recent interview with Sky Sports, Luiz said, “It is amazing to play football, of course last season was not the best for me inside the pitch, but also I learned a lot outside the pitch as a person, as a man.”

“Sometimes you have to be patient, sometimes you have to take care of your body, sometimes you have to learn from outside to be good in the future.

“I got time to take care of my body; many times I was on the pitch in pain, and I never refused to play one game. It was good to rest and be fresh.

“If the manager had stayed the same, of course, everybody knows maybe I would have had to move clubs. Now I am here and so happy.”

Recently, the former Chelsea manager had faced strong criticism from another Brazilian ace Willian, who came out to openly criticize him. The winger lamented, “Would I be here if Conte stayed? No chance”. He added, “No. I’m here because I want to play for Chelsea. I will only leave if Chelsea want me to go.”
