Just after Willian revealed that he would have not have stayed if Antonio Conte was still in charge, another Chelsea player David Luiz has now revealed the same.
David Luiz admitted he’s still at Stamford Bridge only because a new manager was appointed.
The relationship between the former Chelsea manager and few players got worse day by day. It all began when Conte told Diego Costa that he don’t need him and told him to not comeback during a pre-season.
Problems with David Luiz also started to begin. The defender was benched for matches after matches during Conte’s last state of his Chelsea career.
And the Brazilian defender has admitted that he would have left in this transfer window if Conte was still in charge.
Luiz told Sky Sports:
“If the manager had stayed the same, of course, everybody knows maybe I would have had to move clubs. Now I’m here and so happy.”
However, he is now loving life once again at Chelsea after the appointment of Sarri.
“I think every coach comes with new stuff and can improve and help us and of course Sarri are already taught me many things I never saw before. It’s great to understand football – it never stops. Since I started playing football I always learn from every coach, it’s great.”
After a disappointing last season, Luiz and co wants to bounce back. He also believes it will take some time to adapt to the methods of the former Napoli coach.
“The ambition has to be to win every single match, every single competition. This is Chelsea we can’t think in a different way. But we also have to have humility to understand we’re at the beginning of a new philosophy. So we start day-by-day every single week.”
The 31-year-old defender is in his second spell with Chelsea. He has previously won both the Europa League and Champions League with the Blues.
