Why Jose sanctioned the sale of David Luiz
The sale of David Luiz, to Paris St Germain, is a deal that happened before the World Cup.
Chelsea received a very handsome fee for the somewhat erratic Brazilian, a fee that dwarfed the amount we paid Benfica for the player.
But, apart from the money, why did Chelsea let the player go?
Well, as Chelsea continue their re-season tour of Europe, Jose Mourinho has revealed all, remarking to the media,
"Last season he was not a regular first-choice for us."
"As a central defender not at all, it was John Terry and Gary Cahill the whole season."
"In midfield he was a physical guy and gave us important things, especially in the Champions League when Matic couldn`t play."
"But this season Matic and play in the Champions League so we don`t lose that physicality. The fact we have Cesc Fabregas, moves us in a different direction."
"It`s something that our football needs, and we want to go in that direction."
"David did important things here, was always a good professional and we will miss him as a good guy."
"But from a football point of view, we believe our squad was stronger than it was."
Is Jose correct?
