Chelsea's David Luiz accepts need for squad rotation
Chelsea's David Luiz says he accepts the need for squad rotation as inevitable part of life at a Premier League club and claims he is prepared to sit on the bench for the good of the team.
With Chelsea's strength at centre-back, Luiz has himself on the bench at times. Though he admits it is frustrating, he says he understands the need for squad depth.
"When you are on the bench and you are fit, it is a bad feeling. I don't like it but I understand sometimes you need to play other players.
"If you want to do just your own thing and play always, play an individual sport like tennis."
Chelsea face a tricky test away to Steaua Bucharest on Thursday night in the Europa League, and although the club's focus remains finishing as high as possible in the Premier League, Luiz would love to add another European title to his CV.
Luiz said: "This is a great opportunity to win a European title. Last season was Champions League and people were happy but we are hungry again.
"This is the way to think if you play for a big club. We are looking for the Europa League title."
