David Luiz is a ball playing defender who’s known for his expansive football and forward runs. But he has matured a bit more this season and tends to be more disciplined in his role in the centre of the back three.
Speaking about that, the Brazilian told the Daily Mail: “I like defenders who are always looking to transform a defensive ball into an offensive ball, I like this style. Good football. I don’t like the ones who never touch the ball, say, with their left foot.
“But now, I know you cannot always play this way. If they don’t want me to play football, I will find space to touch the ball and try to make the difference another way. Now I manage my game.”
