David Luiz is probably the most high-profile defender to have received criticisms from pundits and journalists alike. Everyone criticised Chelsea and Antonio Conte when the Brazilian was signed on transfer deadline day; only Chelsea fans were excited about the signing, and now Luiz has proven everyone wrong.

Luiz has been a rock for Chelsea in Conte’s back three and he has played in the middle of the back three with relative ease and maturity.

Speaking about what he calls a crazy season, Luiz told the Daily Mail: “It’s like football, I know things a bit more now. I think in a different way. I love our system. It has helped so many players. But, don’t forget, we had also lost games.

“If the manager had started the season playing Victor Moses at right wing-back, everyone would have said, “He’s crazy — go back to Italy.” But with the right circumstances, he’s had an amazing season.

“Everyone thought he was crazy when I came back, too. But I know my role. Cover everybody, cover the space. It is not the best position for me with the ball. Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta touch the ball more than me, because all the strikers stay with me.

“They want to make it boring for me in England, because everybody knows I love to play. But I know more about football now. I know why people play good, why people play bad and I have to play for my team.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
