Former Chelsea Defender David Luiz doesn’t believe his former boss Jose Mourinho is the “special one”.
The Brazilian made a £50 million move from Chelsea to Paris Saint-Germain just ahead of the 2014 World Cup, and will again go head-to-head with his former side in the Champions League in their Round of 16 second-leg.
Luiz admitted that he had some fantastic times with the Blues, but when asked whether Mourinho was a special coach he told L’Equipe:
“He is special for you, not for me.”
The 27-year-old also spoke about Chelsea’s excellent form this season, but believes PSG have what it takes to beat them in their upcoming fixture in the Champions League.
“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,” he added.
“We will have a good game plan and implement it the best way possible to achieve a great performance. Both can still qualify.”
Chelsea currently have a slight advantage over PSG going into the second leg of their Champions League tie, thanks to their away goal.
