Chelsea star David Luiz: No bitterness with Gary Neville
Neville, a pundit on Sky Sports, famously described Luiz's performance in a Premier League encounter as being 'as if controlled by a 10-year-old in the crowd with a Playstation controller'.
David Luiz, though, has revealed that the pair have met and are able to joke about the incident, with no disharmony.
"This is my job and when I chose it I knew that one day if I played for a big club, it would be this way. We cannot please everybody. There are people who love our work and others who hate it. If I do not play well, people will not like him, and the opposite is true also.
"Everything depends on my dedication to my work on the pitch. I accept any kind of criticism when I see there is truth to it. When people criticize just based on their heart, their team, or just for the want of criticising, I just do not listen and do not take anything good from it.
"In the story with Gary Neville, it was a bit unfortunate that in the commentary he did not respect a fellow professional, but I do not hold any bitterness. We have already met at games and I made a point of greeting him, without any resentment. I always joke that he played in Manchester, so it is natural that 70% of him is still red."
