And David Luiz has revealed his delight at having helped the Blues to set up a Europa League final showdown with Arsenal in Baku on 29 May.
Speaking in an interview quoted by Chelsea FC’s website, David Luiz said: “I am so happy to be here and to have this opportunity to stay. I love this club and I still have the ambition of a young player.
“It means a lot to reach another European final – and I will continue to try to do my best to help the team.”
Now that the Premier League season is over, Chelsea FC will switch their focus towards preparing for their crunch clash with Arsenal on 29 May as they aim to finish Sarri’s first season in charge with a trophy.
