Luiz responds to 'untrue' reports

03 September 2016, 23:02

Cape Town - Chelsea defender David Luiz has distanced himself from comments he allegedly made about former club Paris Saint-Germain and the Ligue 1 division.

According to reports published on Odds Bible Tips and Visubal - who in turn quoted Sun Gossip - the Brazil international said that he had wasted two years at the French champions and that playing football in the country was like playing a video game on its easiest level.

Luiz, who signed for Chelsea for a reported £35million after leaving Stamford Bridge for £50million in 2014, denied conducting any interviews with any of the aforementioned publications, while calling the comments he reportedly made "untrue," "malicious" and "disrespectful".

"Dear Fans! A clarification! Be aware!" Luiz said. "The post made on 08.30.2016 hosted by the Twitter account "@SunGossip" and facebook page account "@oddsbibletips" and the post made on 09.01.2016 hosted by the Instagram account "@visubal" contain untrue statements," the 29-year-old posted on his Facebook account.

"Some of which contain malicious falsehood and disrespectful words towards the French League. I never spoke with these accounts and I never gave an interview where I could said this.

"I have a tremendous respect to all French Federation of Football, Football teams, players and supporters.

"I am not against freedom of speech and I recognise the value of fair publication. But be aware about the posts these social media accounts been doing!

"If you're happy, you're a Geezer!

"Thank you all!"

During his time in the French capital, Luiz made 56 appearances in Ligue, scoring three goals and assisting two others. He became the world's most expensive defender when he signed for the Parisians two years ago.
