David Luiz posts defiant message following Atletico Madrid defeat

Chelsea defender David Luiz had a defiant message after the Blues were knocked out of the Champions League.

There will be plenty of dropped heads around Chelsea this morning following their defeat to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

However, David Luiz is determined not to be one of them.

The Brazilian posted a picture on Instagram last night following the game with a defiant message for anyone expecting the Blues to tail off over the rest of the season.

“I can lose a match, but I will never lose my character and my spirit! God knows everything! Congratulations Atletico Madrid!” said the Brazilian.

Luiz continues to be linked with a move away from the club this summer with Barcelona circling like a shark moving in on its prey but the defender seems determined and focused on the rest of the season with the West Londoners.

He’ll definitely be focused on producing some efficient defensive displays over the rest of the season after a Chelsea side, which included six defensive players in the starting eleven was parted during the second-half last night.

His determination and attitude is one small positive the Blues can take from the game.
