David Luiz hailed by teammate Calum Chambers as a great guy
David Luiz has split opinion since he signed for Arsenal from Chelsea but for his new teammates, he is a massive influence.
As fans we get to judge players by their performances on the field of play and not what they bring to the team behind closed doors.
Luiz is a walking talking disaster in my book and I stand by my opinion that he is a huge liability but Chambers has a totally opposite viewpoint.
‘David has been brilliant, he has come in and no-one in the club has a bad word to say about him,’ Chambers said after the game.
‘He is one of the nicest guys I have met, he talks to you, gives you advice and makes everyone feel like he is giving you his undivided attention.
‘Off the pitch, he is a great guy and on the pitch he brings his qualities and is playing well at the moment.
‘He brings some added experience, obviously, he was won things and I haven’t won as many things as he has so there are things I can learn from him both on and off the pitch, it is always good to have an experience like that in the team.’
No doubt Luiz does bring experience and I am certain he is a positive influence in the dressing room but none of that can deflect the fact that he is always one game away from a huge mistake, it is what he is.
There are loads of experienced players out there that can mentor the youngsters and bring experience to the table. We call them coaches.
Still, it is good to see that Chambers appreciates the positives that Luiz has brought to the team.
