Following yesterday’s story about what a nice guy David Luiz is, Calum Chambers has sung the praises of his new teammate after his first goal for Arsenal turned out to be the winner against Bournemouth.
On a day when Arsenal chances were at a premium, the Brazilian’s header from Nicolas Pepe’s corner was enough to give the Gunners a 1-0 win, three points and third place in the Premier League, and afterwards Chambers was keen to talk up the qualities that the former PSG man has brought to the squad.
The reaction to the goal illustrated Luiz’s popularity, and the stand-in right back made it clear he’s held in high esteem.
“David has been brilliant,” he said. “He has come in and no-one in the club has a bad word to say about him.
“He is one of the nicest guys I have met, he talks to you, gives you advice and makes everyone feel like he is giving you his undivided attention.
“Off the pitch, he is a great guy and on the pitch he brings his qualities and is playing well at the moment.
“He brings some added experience, obviously he was won things and I haven’t won as many things as he has so there are things I can learn from him both on and off the pitch, it is always good to have experience like that in the team.”
Luiz also came in for some praise from Unai Emery following the game, with the Spaniard saying, “He’s very positive. Every time he’s speaking about positive things and helping young players.
“He came late into the squad but really, his commitment is very high with us, and his behaviour is too.
“Everybody is happy with that.”
