David Luiz first arrived Chelsea in the summer of 2011, before departing the club three years later and then returned under Antonio Conte in the summer of 2016.
Over the course of his two spells as a Chelsea player, David Luiz has been part of sides which have won the Premier League, Champions League, Europa League and FA Cup, and he has revealed that he never goes into a game thinking Chelsea will lose.
“I never went onto the pitch in a Chelsea shirt thinking, ‘We’re going to lose today,’” he states.
“The feeling is always that we will win, and this is a great feeling, because I’ve been playing football for many, many years and if you feel that way every day, it means you’re in the right place.
“Chelsea’s a big club with the opportunity to fight every year for titles and there is also pressure to get results quickly. But it’s a good pressure, and I think if you don’t feel this pressure you stop being the type of player to play for Chelsea.
“Look at the Champions League in 2012. In one moment of the season, everybody was saying it was the worst for Chelsea in the last 10 years. But every single match we went out on the pitch to win, hoping to win, and in the end we won the Champions League, so it was the best year. So we changed our worst year for a long time into the best year in the history of this club. This is amazing.”
