“I have huge respect for David Luiz” – Frank Lampard


Frank Lampard on David Luiz

Chelsea boss, Frank Lampard, has maintained that he has huge respect for Arsenal ace, David Luiz because the Brazilian was a classic player during his time at the Blues in 2012.

Lampard, who played alongside David Luiz at Chelsea, said this on Friday at his pre-match press conference ahead of Chelsea’s FA Cup final clash with Mikel Arteta’s side on Saturday at Wembley Stadium.

Chelsea head to the game after defeating Manchester United 3-1 in the FA Cup semi-final a few days ago, while Arsenal won Pep Guardiola’s side 2-0.

“No, [David] Luiz, is not a weak link, absolutely not,” Lampard said.

“I have huge respect for David, he was a top player in our 2012 campaign, and I know what a big player he can be for Arsenal.”

David Luiz, 33, joined Arsenal last summer from Chelsea for £8million.

The former Paris Saint-German centre-back recently signed a one-year new contract extension with Arsenal.
