Former Chelsea defender David Luiz has revealed how he struggled to get over his infamous move to City rivals, Arsenal last summer.

Luiz joined Arsenal for £8m but the Brazilian defender told OTRO (captured by Metro) it was not emotionally easy for him to overcome.

“I can be honest with you, the first three days or week was not easy to understand all the emotions or how I was feeling because everybody knows my history with Chelsea," Luiz said

“I had this connection with everyone at the club. It was so massive and big, and I was missing every single one. ‘Every text message I was receiving, people were saying: “Come back, come back, come back, come back, we are here for you”.

I give you the example of a gentleman there who is 75 years old. He was taking breakfast with me at the time when he had the opportunity. ‘He was texting me: “I am still waiting for you here to take the breakfast again”.

“This kind of thing was so difficult for me because I am someone that sees the heart as the most important thing. ‘But then after that, in a professional way, I was saying: “It is a new moment for you. It is another big thing for you to do. Maybe if you stay in the comfort zone it is not going to be the best thing for you?”

“If you look at my history of life I was never wishing to stay in the comfort zone. It was the top decision. [Arsenal] are a big club. I want to make this club improve and to shine again. The first days were difficult but after that, I started to adapt. ‘Now I am so happy and I want to do big, big things with Arsenal.”
