David Luiz admits he was left questioning his move to Arsenal shortly after his surprise switch from Chelsea last summer. The 32-year-old joined the Gunners in an £8 million deal last August, but following a poor start to the campaign under Unai Emery, Luiz admits he ‘often wondered why the decision was made’.
Luiz also concedes that he was fully aware of the pressure put on him to immediately improve Arsenal’s defence and says it was ‘difficult’ to see Chelsea fans being unhappy with his decision to leave. ‘I was always very happy at Chelsea. And then the understanding of knowing that my cycle was over, even though I thought it wasn’t going to end that way, in a quick decision,’ Luiz told ESPN Brasil. (Text and photo courtesy Metro)
