Former Chelsea defender David Luiz left Stamford Bridge for Arsenal on transfer deadline day and according to the 32 year old defender, he is a guy with ambition and that was why he left Chelsea for Arsenal.

“I am a guy with ambition and that is why I moved,” Luiz said. “I could choose a comfortable zone and get money and be cool and that is it.

“But I like a new challenge and new things in my life. This is what gives me oxygen and gives me motivation. One day football will finish. I am trying to be honest with my heart. Everyone knows I was so happy in Chelsea. I won many trophies there and had a real honest conversation with Lamps, and Lamps had different ideas for his plans for the year.

“So the best way for me to respect the club was to move on and try a new challenge, and give him the opportunity to do his job. This is a big club and I want to be here and see it shine.

“This is my motivation every day. That is why I left my family when I was 14 to try to do something around the world. I’m going to try to do my best here.”

“In life you have to believe,” Luiz continued. “My philosophy on life is to be positive and to be a dreamer. But understand, to dream is one thing and to achieve your dream, you have a lot to do. I have my health, I can dream and we can fight for something big.”
