Ancelotti tips David Luiz for greatness

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has tipped £21m January signing David Luiz to become one of the best centre-backs in the world.

Talking on the official Chelsea website, the Italian manager said: “David Luiz is a very good defender because he has the ability and skills to play in all the positions in the back four; centre-back, left-back – he has never played right-back but he has the quality to.

“I think he will be one of the best defenders in the world in the future. He is young but has fantastic experience – he played for Benfica and in the Champions League.”

Luiz, who is set to start against Fulham on Monday, told of his happiness at making the move to Stamford Bridge: “I am very happy here at Chelsea, I’m settling well. Everyone made me welcome and I am looking forward to being a player for Chelsea.
