David Luiz takes to social media to dedicate a special Valentine's Day message to his girlfriend

A post shared by David Luiz (@davidluiz_4) on

David Luiz has taken to social media to wish his girlfriend a happy Valentine’s Day after the couple enjoyed some downtime together this week.

The Brazilian defender has been one of Chelsea’s standout performers this season since his transfer back to Stamford Bridge in the summer window.

Luiz returned to west London late last summer much to the surprise of Chelsea supporters, who had watched the defender leave the club to move to PSG in 2014.

The defender has been a regular fixture in the starting line-up at Chelsea this season and has been playing through a painful knee injury in recent weeks.

And the Brazil international used his personal Instagram account to post a soppy tribute to his partner on the social network.

Luiz posted the photo montage above on the app and wrote the caption: “It’s true that I was already smiling a lot, but with you, the brightness is totally different!

“Praying always that God will bless us and use us as his tools here on earth! I’m happy by your side BruBru! HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY”
