"I love Chelsea"

David Luiz returned to Stamford Bridge because his leadership qualities can help the club build on the Champions League and Europa League won during his first spell.

David Luiz has revealed that he returned to Chelsea because he loves the club and wants to lead Antonio Conte’s team to more silverware.

The eccentric Brazilian first joined Chelsea from Benfica in 2011 and won the Champions League and the Europa League during a three-year stint at Stamford Bridge before moving to Paris Saint-Germain for a fee reported to be in the region of £50 million.

"I am a lucky player, I was living in Paris and now I'm back in London, so I can't complain, my life is great," Luiz told Sky Sports.

"Paris was also amazing for me. I spent two years there and I was winning a lot. But I decided to come back.”

Luiz re-joined Chelsea for £32 million this summer and has been performing brilliantly in a side which is currently top of the Premier League having only conceded 11 times all season.

"I have in my personality (leadership qualities); I like to organise, I try to be a leader in the dressing room too,” he said.

"I try to help my team-mates and the club - that's why I came back.

"I love the club, because I had the opportunity, because I think it was my purpose to come back.

"Decisions in football happen quickly. When Chelsea came to me and said they wanted me to come back I was happy because I had a special moment here - one of the best in my career.”
