David Luiz has stoked up the tension surrounding Paris Saint-Germain’s UEFA 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, however, Chelsea hold a slight advantage courtesy of their away goal in the French capital.
Luiz left Chelsea for PSG in a £50m move last June after his only season under the stewardship of Mourinho, who has long been referred to as “the special one”.
But Luiz told L’Equipe, “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.”
