Days later, David Luiz reveals delight at Chelsea’s Champions League progress
After receiving praise from Chelsea manager José Mourinho following Tuesday nights 2-0 win over Paris Saint-Germain, David Luiz has revealed his pleasure at that performance.
Mourinho described the Brazilian’s performance as monstrous and the utility man told Chelseafc.com about his delight prior to the Blues Premier League clash against Swansea.
He said: “I played a fantastic game in Paris but I was unlucky with a couple of moments. I was thinking about it between the two matches and I felt I had to play the same way at Stamford Bridge.
“I knew if I prepared right I would be able to have a good game and help my team, so that's what I did in the week leading up to the game.”
Luiz went on to add that he was satisfied with his performances in both legs, despite scoring an own goal in the first match, and that he enjoyed watching the Champions League quarter-final second leg back.
“I was happy with my performances in both legs; when you win people look at the game in a different way but that's football, it's about results, not performances,” Luiz exclaimed.
“Everybody knows when I'm on the pitch I give everything and play with my heart, but everybody played with the same spirit.
“I watched the game back at home afterwards and it was fantastic to see every player working hard, wanting the ball and helping each other.”
