David Luiz has heaped a lot of praise on his manager Antonio Conte, and he has hailed the Italian as one of the best he has worked with.
“He’s one of the best coaches I’ve ever worked with,” he told ESPN Brazil. “He knows very well the characteristics of each player and we follow exactly what he guides us to do on the pitch.
Speaking about how Conte has transferred his ideas to the team, that has turned Chelsea into a force, Luiz said: “We soon understood the philosophy and system that Conte likes to play. He made us understand even more that the collective dedication to a system is fundamental for the individuals to stand out.
“We know how to play with and without the ball, both in attack and defence. If we are without the ball, everyone knows how to defend and with it, each one knows his role well to help the attack.
“Conte is a coach who loves what he does and it infects all of us who love football. Every training and every game is a manifestation of how winning and competing is important to him, so for us, the motivation to keep focus is always high.”
