The Brazilian international who departed Stamford Bridge after just one season believes the Portuguese's comments can have different effects on different players.
However, Luis, who made 15 appearances for the Blues before rejoining Atletico Madrid, does not see anything wrong with the way Mourinho acts.

As per ESPN, the 30-year-old said: "He has his way of talking to the press, especially when the team loses, which can sometimes be damaging to certain players. Some players benefit from criticism but for others they don't.
"Sometimes he's right and sometimes he's not. Sometimes people think what he says is absurd and sometimes they agree with him. It's the way he is and the way he works -- I see it as normal."
There is no doubting something is not right at Stamford Bridge. Having won the Premier League last season, the Blues now look like a completely different animal.
The west London club have already lost seven league matches and find themselves three points above the relegation zone.
Didier Drogba's autobiography offers an interesting insight into Mourinho's previous spell at the club, and the similarities are striking.
The Ivorian forward claims the wheels began to come off the Special One's previous reign in his fourth season when his message was no longer getting through to the players.
Many Chelsea fans are fully behind their boss, but it will take something incredible for Mourinho to overturn his current predicament.
