David Luiz Hails ‘Amazing’ Chelsea Season
Chelsea defender David Luiz says that his team have had an excellent season, despite criticism over the approach of new boss Maurizio Sarri.
Chelsea finished 3 rd in the Premier League and got to the Carabao Cup Final. They will also contest the Europa League Final with Arsenal later this month.
The Brazilian told Sky Sports that, despite the scrutiny over Sarri’s methods, the Blues can be proud of what they have achieved this season.
“We did amazing, especially with the first year for a new coach," Luiz said. "Nobody expected Chelsea to finish third. Everybody thought we were going to be out of the Champions League.
"We're fighting for the Europa League and we lost the League Cup on penalties, a competition where we beat Liverpool and Tottenham and were the better side against Manchester City in the final."
