Chelsea’s summer transfer deadline day signing David Luiz, has revealed that it was a risk for him to return to Chelsea, due to the constant criticisms he suffered during his time in the Premier League.

The Brazilian called it a risk to come back, but it was a risk worth taking.

When Chelsea secured his signing on transfer deadline day, a lot of pundits mocked Chelsea for the decision, but the 30-year-old finally proved his worth and put his critics to shame.

The 30-year-old said: “I was winning in Paris. I went there for two years and won all the titles in France. I had a great life, I had a great credibility with the club. I had everything, and then I took a risk to come back to a country that was not that happy with me.

“They always criticise me a lot, even with [helping Chelsea win] the Champions League and Europa League. That’s why it was a risk – and I love the risk.

“I think, in your life, if you don’t take a risk, you’re not going to taste something new. Not just in your professional life, it’s every day. I’m very happy, because I took the decision and it was the right decision.”
