David Luiz blasts Chelsea's s**t trophy-less season

Published Add your comment

David Luiz has hit out at Chelsea's lack of silverware this season, admitting that it is 'sh*t' for a club of their stature to not win a trophy.

The Blues look on course to finish the campaign empty-handed after being knocked out of the Champions League at the semi-final stage by Atletico Madrid in mid-week after a 3-1 defeat which followed a 0-0 draw in the first leg in Spain.

Earlier this season Chelsea were knocked out of the FA Cup by Manchester City, and fell to Sunderland in the Capital One Cup.

With two points separating Jose Mourinho's side from league leaders Liverpool with two games to go, it appears unlikely that Chelsea will get their hands on a trophy this season.

Luiz admits that isn't good enough for a club like the Blues.

"You can say it is a shit season if you don't have trophies in a season at a big club, that is true," the Brazilian said. "The season we won the Champions League [in 2012] was a shit season until the end and then we won two titles.

"We are a big club and we want to win trophies, but the most important thing is to have a personality. You need to fight in many situations. This is sport, this is football. Everyone speaks about results, that's true.

"If there were many poor games, when you didn't play, didn't run, didn't give your best then fine, but we gave our best in many, many games like Wednesday, but sometimes it's possible to win sometimes not.

"Now, we keep fighting in the league because mathematically we can win. We cannot win automatically, it will be difficult."

Following Chelsea's Champions League exit, which came about after Fernando Torres had given his side the lead at Stamford Bridge, skipper John Terry was pictured crying.

Luiz says Terry's reaction to the loss summed up how the entire squad was feeling.

"Everyone is crying," Luiz said. "Nobody likes to lose a Champions League semi-final, not just John.

"We have to remember we are lucky people who have the best job in the world. We have to respect that people at home do not have the same life as us."

Chelsea will look to keep their slim title chances alive when they take on Norwich on Sunday.
