New Chelsea signing David Luiz spoke about his return to Stamford Bridge after just two years.

The Brazilian defender told the club’s official website: “I can say now that my relationship with everyone here was always amazing, with everyone working here and with the players and I can feel the same respect and the same love now. So if I had the opportunity to go back into the past, I would say a special thank you to everybody because I spent three-and-a-half years here and they were amazing. I was growing a lot and that is why I just had great memories of here”.

“It is understood Luiz was very keen on moving back to his former club on Deadline Day: “It was my decision, yes – the 29-year-old revealed – I really wanted to come back because I spent an amazing time here. I loved to be here and that is why I want to come back”.

“Of course I had a great relationship with Oscar and the Brazilians and with the other players here, so when you miss your friends you want to be together and that is why we went out to have dinner. I am a lucky guy. I’ve had the opportunity to play in Europe for amazing clubs. I had a great relationship with Benfica, a great relationship here and a great relationship with PSG”.

“When I left my family my mum and dad taught me to respect everybody before everything else. It does not matter if you win or lose in life, you need to respect everybody. That is what I try to do every day”.
