The Chelsea defender made his thoughts known after Chelsea’s remarkable comeback against Napoli in the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League, as they defeated the Italian underdogs by four goals to one at Stamford Bridge
to set up a date with Benfica in the quarterfinals...
David Luiz has come out and made it clear that it was Chelsea’s fault that Ander Villas Boas did not get enough time to make a good impact at the London club. Chelsea parted company with their manager Andre Villas Boas recently
after their loss to West Bromwich Albion in the English Premier League. It was a drastic step taken once again by their owner Roman Abramovich who has temporarily replaced Villas Boas with Roberto Di Matteo, the former’s assistant manager.
Chelsea showcased tremendous character in their recent UEFA Champions League tie against Napoli where the likes of Drogba and John Terry gave a vintage performance as the Blues gathered a 4-1 win at their home stadium. In doing
so, Chelsea are now set to face Benfica in the quarterfinals of the Champions League. Nonetheless worries still remain at the London club as to who will take over permanently at Stamford Bridge given the history of dismissals at the football club.
Luiz said, "I'm really sad, as Andre was a really capable professional. Unfortunately; he didn't have the time to show his true value at Chelsea. He didn't have the chance. You cannot doubt a professional like him, who won five
titles last season and was feted by everyone. But he didn't have enough time at Chelsea."
He added, "We are a united team but, unfortunately, we couldn't get the results that Andre deserved. There were no problems between Villas-Boas and Drogba, Lampard and Essien." Chelsea will hope that they can build onwards from
their win against Napoli and make an improvement in the English Premier League as well where they are due to face Manchester City in the upcoming weeks as well as Tottenham before the end of the season.
