Luiz is praying for champion title
By ANDREW DILLON (the Sun)
DAVID LUIZ has faith in Chelsea to land a remarkable Premier League and Champions League double.
The deeply-religious Brazilian defender thanks God every day for the talent that has made him an instant sensation at Stamford Bridge.
Burly, curly-top Luiz already looks a bargain at £23million for his immaculate timing in defence and knack for scoring vital goals after just seven weeks as a Premier League star.
He said: “I go to church, my religion is very important to me. I praise God and thank the Lord for my family, health and giving me my talent to play football.
“My faith gives me the belief I can play, improve and get even better as a footballer. It gives me a lot of strength and inspiration.
“We can definitely still win the title. There’s still a lot of games to play, a lot of points to play for so there’s no reason we can’t win it.
“I want to win them both, the Premier League and the Champions League and we can still do it.
“We’re in good form and have to believe we can win trophies. We’re playing well, anything is possible.”
Luiz’s ability to hit the target up front and make last-ditch tackles at the back has already won the hearts of Chelsea fans.
His distinctive mop head hair was a blur when he nodded the first of Chelsea’s two goals on Sunday that lifted them above vanquished visitors Manchester City and into third.
And robust defending saw him clinch yet another man-of-the-match award – less than three weeks after his bullet shot helped Chelsea fight back to beat Manchester United 2-1 to set up a late tilt at the title.
Luiz, 23, is cup-tied in Europe but insists he will be there every step of the way to back his team-mates.
Chelsea face United in the quarter- finals and Luiz said: “I chose to come here because it’s the best league in the world. It’s a really tough league.
“I can’t play in the Champions League but I’m supporting the team.
“The happiness of my team-mates would make me happy.
“I’m really happy the fans have taken to me but it’s more important that the team is playing well and getting results.”
