A very nice gesture by David Luiz in his farewell from PSG and his fans, right after he signed a contract to wear again the Chelsea shirt.

This is what the Brazilian defender posted on his Instagram account:

“Working life sometimes offers the opportunity to enjoy great moments of satisfaction.

“Thank you, President Nasser Al-Khelaifi, for all the good moments of satisfaction I experienced at Paris Saint-Germain.

I also thank all my team-mates, my two coaches, technical committee and all these amazing people employed by the club with whom I had the pleasure of sharing my days at the training centre and at Parc des Princes.

To you the fans a very big, BIG THANK YOU! After two seasons at PSG, we had the opportunity to share unforgettable moments! Together we celebrated two league titles, two Coupes de France, two Coupes de la Ligue and two Trophees des Champions!

I am very proud to have helped build some of the history of this great club PSG, and I am eternally grateful and happy to have played in the French championships!

“Paris Saint-Germain: I wish the very best for your next season! Thank you very much the city of Paris, for these beautiful moments!”

Radamel Falcao joined Chelsea squad two weeks ago but he revealed to the club website that he’s already feeling like at home in his new team, since there is a great atmosphere and everybody is ready to help:

The atmosphere in the squad here is very good, they are very friendly with me and everybody gave me a big welcome.

“It helped to go away on tour with my new team-mates and since we returned to London we haven’t had a lot of free days, but some players have been helping me to get to know the city and helping me to look at houses so I am grateful to them for their help.

Falcao already knows the Premier League, having played last season at Manchester United:

It’s a lot more physical here than anywhere else in Europe. Maybe the football philosophy is a little different here in that it is always about getting the ball forward and there is less time when teams are just trying to control the ball and take the heat out of the game.

The Colombian striker reveals his team-mates are helping him a lot to settle in London:

“Once you get to know your team-mates, you all know when it is the right time to put your foot on the ball and take the heat out of the game and when it is the right time to go forward, all out.

“It’s a very, very competitive league where each team gives absolutely everything they’ve got in every game they play.

“It demands 100 per cent of your ability and focus because it is very competitive, very physical and tactical too. One particular positive is that the atmosphere in every ground here is fantastic.

Petr Cech and Andre Schürrle were team-mates at Chelsea just one year ago and nothing led to think that they would be out of Chelsea squad not even nine months after the German fantastic goal in the Premier League opening game against Burnley in August 2014.

Schürrle came back to London last weekend for the Emirates Trophy and immediately faced his former fellow-mate with his new team, Wolfsburg.

The attacking midfielder was asked what does he think about Cech’s move to Arsenal:

“For sure it is a great transfer for Arsenal: Petr Cech is a great professional and person so he will help them a lot this season.

But he doesn’t think this will be enough for Wenger’s side to win the Premier League:

“I think the league will be the same because they are champions now and know how to win and the whole team stayed, so they will be very good.

“I think they are favourites for the title”.
