David Luiz sends message to Chelsea fans about his obssession
The Chelsea defender is desperate to win the Premier League title...
David Luiz admits he is obsessed with winning the Premier League title.
The Chelsea defender is on the brink of winning his first Premier League crown with three games to go in the title race.
Luiz moved to Chelsea in a 32m deal from Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain in the 2017 summer transfer window.
The Brazil international returned to the west London club just over two years after Chelsea sold Luiz to PSG under Jose Mourinho.
Luiz has been a key part of the Chelsea defence throughout Antonio Conte’s first season in charge at Stamford Bridge.
The former Benfica defender failed to win the Premier League crown during his first spell at Chelsea despite lifting the Champions League trophy.
Speaking to FourFourTwo magazine about his obsession with winning the Premier League title, Luiz said: “I had already won several titles with Chelsea, played my part in a beautiful period in the club’s history and made so many friends.
“I thought it was time to move on, so I had no regrets. But things change quickly in football.
“Winning the Premier League has always been an obsession of mine. This is one of the toughest competitions in the world. We’ve worked hard to make this dream come true.”
Chelsea are sitting four points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
The Blues will take on Middlesbrough in their next game at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.
