‘Dreamer’ Luiz Wants Arsenal ‘To Do Big Things’
Arsenal defender David Luiz has urged his new club to dream big, following his deadline day arrival from Chelsea.
The Brazilian joined the club in an £8m deal and made his debut in the 2-1 win over Burnley at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
Luiz says he has big ambitions for his time in North London, “In life you have to believe,” said the 32-year-old. “If you don't try things you are never going to know if you can do it or not.
“My philosophy on life is to be positive and to be a dreamer. But understand to dream is one thing and to achieve your dream you have a lot to do.
“I can dream and we can fight for something big. That is always going to be my speech to everyone – it is possible for us and everybody.
“It is up to the team, the team is going to dream more, the team is going to prepare better, understand the game and that is it.”
Luiz also says he intends to pass on his vast experience to his new teammates, “I try to give what I have learnt from my life. I think you can give when you have something to do.
“I had many fantastic moments in my career and many titles and I just try to make them understand that everything is possible if you work hard and if you believe, are humble, keep your feet on the ground and take it step by step.”
