"I decided to leave Chelsea before Arsenal called me"

David Luiz was one of the big names in this summer's transfer market. The Brazilian defender switched London clubs as he moved from Chelsea to Arsenal and the player responded about when he decided to do it.

The now Arsenal centre-back, who is not having a good start to the 'Gunners' side with his performances, spoke with journalist Mauro Cezar about his Chelsea exit.

"Leaving Chelsea was a decision made in an individual way after a very honest conversation with Frank Lampard. We had different ideas about my use and I decided to leave before the Arsenal offer came in," David Luiz explained.

The Brazilian centre-back confirmed that one decision had nothing to do with the other. "Days after I decided to change, they called me and I didn't think twice," he stated.

Even so, David Luiz is aware of what a change of team meant, but not of the city. "It's complicated by the rivalry, but I needed to write a new story in a new destination," he said.
