Mourinho is not special, insists Luiz

Written by on March 9, 2015



David Luiz has stoked up the tension surrounding Paris Saint-Germain‘s Champions League last 16 second-leg clash with Chelsea by claiming Jose Mourinho “is not special”.

PSG travel to Stamford Bridge with the tie level at 1-1 following the first leg at the Parc des Princes last month but Chelsea hold a slight advantage courtesy of their away goal in the French capital.

Luiz left Chelsea for PSG in a €50 million move last June after one frustrating season under the stewardship of Mourinho, who has long been referred to as “the Special One”.

But Luiz told a L’Equipe journalist: “He is special for you, not for me.

“I had some great moments at Chelsea and won a lot of titles. I was very happy.

“They are having a great season, defend well and have great players but above all I know my team. We will try to score there and play like we know how.

“We will have a good game plan and implement it the best way possible to achieve a great performance. Both can still qualify.”
