José Mourinho hails David Luiz’s performance in Chelsea’s 2-0 victory against Paris Saint-Germain
José Mourinho has praised the performance of David Luiz in Chelsea’s 2-0 Champions League quarter-final victory against Paris Saint-Germain.
Demba Ba’s late strike ensured The Blues progressed into the semi-finals on away goals. Luiz, who had been criticised for his role in Chelsea’s 3-1 first leg defeat last week, came to the fore with an outstanding showing that earned the adulation of his Portuguese manager.
Everyone gave absolutely everything,” Mourinho told UEFA.com. “My four defenders, as always, were brilliant, my midfield worked like animals, David Luiz was a monster.
"My players in attack tried to create with their quality and some others tried with their physical power, and Nando [Torres] and Demba Ba helped when they came on.
