Chelsea new signing David Luiz faces harsh criticism after joining the Stamford Bridge for the second time in his career and the Brazilian defender was labeled as a worse player than he was two years ago.

The 29-year-old star has sealed stunning £34m return to West London club on deadline day, having left the club to join the League 1 outfit PSG for £50m back in June 2014.

Antonio Conte was desperate to recruit a new centre-half in the summer window and turned his attention to the 29-year-old after missing out on Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly and AC Milan’s Alessio Romagnoli.

The Brazil international helped the French giants to win consecutive Ligue 1 titles but French journalist Julien Laurens claims that the 29-year-old rarely impressed during his time at Parc Des Princes.

 During his interview with BBC 5 Liver, Laurens said: “He’s been a liability for PSG more than anything else. Everybody remembers the game had against Barcelona and Luis Suarez, who nutmegged him twice in the Champions League quarter-final.“He hasn’t improved since leaving Chelsea. He’s probably coming back a worse player than when he left.

“I’ve watched him pretty much every weekend since he joined PSG, I can hardly remember four games where he was actually good. He had some shockers, PSG couldn’t believe their luck.

“First of all they tried to keep him because they had no other option but the money’s too good, we can’t turn that down, it’s impossible.”
