Chelsea defender David Luiz has impressed in the centre of a back three for Chelsea this season and his performances earned him a place in the PFA Team of the Year.
Luiz revealed his position in the centre of a back three is a tactical position because he needs to be the cover for everybody, for the defence, the midfielders and the wingers.
“I started to play as a defender in this system when I was young,” Luiz said as quoted on Chelsea’s official website.
“I didn’t play it for a long time and now I’ve come back to a back three. In this system we work a lot in a tactical way and he gives me a lot of advice about how to read the game because in my position you need to be the cover for everybody, for the defence, the midfielders and the wingers, it’s a tactical position.
“I love working with him. He works on the details and he’s helped me a lot so it’s very good to work with him.”
