David Luiz returned to Chelsea from PSG in August of 2016, former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte brought the Brazilian back to the Bridge in his attempt to reinforce Chelsea’s defense.
The Blues were crowned Champions that 16/17 season. Ever since the Brazilian has struggled with consistency through injuries, almost every Chelsea manager at some point has questioned his abilities and commitment towards the club.
Time and again the 32-year-old has proven himself to be one of the best in the game and he deserves to make the starting lineup for the Blues.
The defender has been rewarded for his hard work with a 2-year contract extension despite Chelsea’s policy not to sign or extend player contracts who are above 32-year-old, the Blues are currently facing a two transfer market ban.

He’s more than just a player though, he’s a massive influence on the training ground,
“For the young talent, it’s important we have a senior figure to have at least a few who have a lot of experience and knows how to deal with things,” Ruben said.
“He’s a great character in the dressing room as well. So for him to stay and be at Chelsea for two years is great for us and the club.”
It will be a sad day when he leaves, and we will have to make sure we have groomed a good leader in the dressing room to replace him.
