Pundit: Conte simply can’t afford to lose this ‘glorious’ 29-year-old Chelsea star

The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been delighted with David Luiz’s recent form, and it appears as though BBC Pundit Garth Crooks feels the same way…

After placing Luiz within his much-discussed BBC Team of the Week, Crooks described the defender as “glorious’, before adding: “If Chelsea are serious about winning the Champions League next season they must do whatever it takes to keep Luiz”.

Indeed, it is remarkable just how far Luiz has come since he left Chelsea several years ago. A defender renowned for making mistakes, he has since cut those out of his game completely – instead becoming a reliable hand in the heart of the Blues’ defence.

He has arguably been one of Chelsea’s best players this season, seamlessly taking up the mantle from John Terry, and whilst Conte deserves credit for that – Luiz deserves high praise for his return to form.

Luiz has made 27 Premier League appearances this season, scoring once.

Chelsea fans – thoughts? Is Luiz Chelsea’s Player of the Season?
