Jose Mourinho: Don’t blame David Luiz for Brazil’s 7-1 thrashing
Jose Mourinho feels that it is unfair to pin the blame for Brazil's 7-1 loss to Germany on David Luiz
Jose Mourinho “doesn’t think it’s fair” to place a large portion of the blame for Brazil’s 7-1 thrashing by Germany on David Luiz.
The former Chelsea defender was heavily criticised for an erratic display as the hosts were torn apart and conceded five goals in the first half of the World Cup semi-final clash.
The team as a team made mistakes. So I don’t think it’s fair
But Chelsea manager Mourinho, who opted to allow Luiz to join Paris Saint-Germain in a £50m deal earlier this summer, feels that the whole Brazil team was to blame for the humiliating loss.
“I don’t think it is fair to separate a player from the team, because the team was very bad,” Mourinho told Yahoo.
“Did David make mistakes? Yes, he made, but Dante made mistakes, Marcelo made mistakes, Fernandinho made mistakes, the team as a team made mistakes. So I don’t think it’s fair.
“I think everyone who is in my situation, everyone who is a player, everyone who is a coach, everyone who is not involved in the World Cup but could be in that position, I think all of us, we are feeling really, really sorry for them because it is a historical moment, a moment that will remain forever the same way.”
