David Luiz Impressed By Resilience of Young Guns
Arsenal defender David Luiz praised his young teammates for their impressive 2-0 victory over Portsmouth in the FA Cup on Monday night.
The Gunners were stunned on Thursday night when they were eliminated from the Europa League by Olympiacos.
Luiz, who captained a side featuring seven players under the age of 23, was impressed by their capacity to respond on the south coast.
“I think it’s important to continue to do the job we are doing everyday. Since Mikel’s been here, we are improving a lot, but we have to be humble & understand we are not there yet.
“Last game, we did an amazing game but we lose & we have to understand why. Tonight, I am so pleased with the team, with everybody, with the young boys.
“They are improving a lot every week, they have a great mentality & they understand what is high level. High level have to bounce back every week, ready to react & ready to understand football.”
