Maurizio Sarri has been speaking about David Luiz’s ability and has praised the defender.

The Chelsea boss has admitted that the defender has more qualities and is actually better than he thought.

In a chat with the press, when speaking about David Luiz, Sarri said:

‘I had the feeling he is a very good player’

“I have to say he is better than I thought before, really better,

“As a player and as a man.

“I don’t know [what happened] before, but when I arrived here immediately I had the feeling he is a very good player for my way of football because he is a very technical centre-back. Then, I appreciate very much the man.

“He is direct. If he has to say something to the manager, to talk to me, he [comes] direct to me.

“He was a little confused [when I arrived] because two seasons ago he was a protagonist [in the team], and then [he went] six months without playing.
