Was the surprise re-capture of David Luiz really such a smart move from Chelsea?

Was the surprise re-capture of David Luiz really such a smart move from Chelsea?

Let’s face it – although many millions of pounds have indeed been spent upon the services of David Luiz throughout his recent stint among the upper echelons of the European game – the 29-year-old Brazilian international has certainly seen his overall reputation halted somewhat in recent seasons.

 

The now former PSG centre-back often portrays himself as a strong and captivating character both on and off the pitch for sure, but can his overall defensive capabilities be relied upon down at Stamford Bridge ahead of what looks to be a crucial season for the Blues? We shall have to wait and see…

 

Although the man himself seemingly remains in upbeat spirits ahead of his second spell with the Blues…

 

 

…some Premier League onlookers have been left somewhat surprised by Chelsea’s recent decision to bring David Luiz soundly back among the English top-flight…

 

 

Antonio Conte’s judgement has even been criticised in the wake of the 29-year-old’s second spell down in West London…

 

 

…as well as that of the Stamford Bridge hierarchy who financed his shock re-capture in the first place…

 

 

There are nonetheless those who are willing to welcome the Brazilian international back with open arms this campaign…

 

 

…even if his relatively recent departure from their club must still receive its due consideration within the grand scheme of things…

 

 

But whilst Chelsea fans admittedly have every reason to love David Luiz as something of a modern cult character at their club…

 

 

…his overall ability to do the business under Conte this term still seems a little suspect in the cold light of day. Chelsea could therefore begin to regret this recent move sooner, rather than later…
