Chelsea defender David Luiz has admitted he’s still struggling with the knee injury he suffered in December against Manchester City but is confident that surgery won’t be necessary.

“Only I feel the pain, but we have amazing medical staff and they have been great with me – he said – Every single match, every single player they are there for every player. They have helped me a lot”. 

Sergio Aguero was shown a red card following his late tackle on David Luiz.

The Brazilian star added: “I won’t need an operation in the summer. But it’s very good for me to rest, not just the knee, but the body as well”.

“I am disappointed to not be in the Brazil squad, but I respect the decision. I’m playing regularly and trying to do my best to come back [into the squad]. Have I been told why I wasn’t picked? No.”
