The Chelsea defender celebrates Christmas with his family...
David Luiz shared a Christmas snap with his family as the Chelsea defender reflected on what has been a positive start to life back at Stamford Bridge.
The Brazil international has been a pivotal figure in Chelsea’s title challenge after Luiz secured a return to the west London club just two years after swapping the Blues for Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain in a £50m deal.
Luiz was the fifth and final signing of the summer transfer window for new manager Antonio Conte after the Premier League leaders signed Luiz in a £32m deal from the French club to bolster their defensive options.
The South American has established an imperious centre-half partnership with Cesar Azpilicueta and Gary Cahill that has helped Chelsea to keep more clean sheets than any of their Premier League rivals.
And Luiz was quick to give thanks for what has been a memorable couple of months in the English capital as Chelsea remain on course to win a fifth Premier League title.
Luiz posted the above photo and wrote on his Instagram page:
“About last night… Tks God for the opportunity to be with my family and friends, everything is from you and for u! Xmas moments !”
