Dennis Wise talks about the Chelsea player he 'worries about'

Former Chelsea hero Dennis Wise has voiced his concerns over David Luiz.

Brazilian international David Luiz is a player who splits opinion, with the topic of his best position a regular talking point. 

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said last week that he would not be playing Luiz in midfield, with defence his preference - at odds with former boss Rafa Benitez.

Luiz actually got the opportunity to play in both positions against Swindon Town in their 2-0 win.

SkySports pundit and former Chelsea hero Dennis Wise was quizzed on his performance after the game and admitted he would rather the Brazilian play in midfield.

"I like him in midfield. He does worry me a lot (at the back). When he's the last man and he tries to do a backheel... that's what worries me.

"He might get away with it against Swindon, not so much in the Premier League."

Wise was referring to an incident where Luiz tried to do exactly that, but was able to recover from his errant backheel and help recover the ball. 

Not a Wise choice, you could say.

Where do you believe Luiz' best position is?
