Klopp could face Luiz on Friday.

Jurgen Klopp speaks about David Luiz's career

Published 3 Comments

The summer transfer window appeared to be dominated be players making a return to their former club.

Alvaro Morata, Mario Gotze and Paul Pogba did that but perhaps the most surprising return of them all was David Luiz’s move back to Stamford Bridge.

The first reports of the Brazilian re-signing for the west London club emerged just 24 hours before the transfer window slammed shut with Antonio Conte getting the deal over the line on deadline day.

The 29-year-old arrived in a £34 million deal from Paris Saint-Germain, just two years after joining the French club for £50 million.

Luiz was left out of Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Swansea on Sunday but it appears he will be making his second debut against Liverpool on Friday night. That’s because John Terry suffered an ankle injury in the match and will, therefore, will miss the clash against Jurgen Klopp’s side.

While Liverpool supporters were delighted to hear that Luiz could well be thrown into action on Friday, Klopp has also had his say on the erratic defender.

“I think it’s an interesting and impressive career. Somebody could write a book about it,” he said.

“I spoke too much about the qualities of the Chelsea players.

“It’s the same with David Luiz, he’s strong in all parts of the game, unfortunately. That’s football, even then you can find a way [to beat him]. No problem.”


It’s little wonder that Klopp feels that it will be ‘no problem’ for his side to find a way past Luiz and co. on Friday.

Liverpool have already scored four times on two separate occasions this season - against Arsenal and Leicester - with the likes of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana and Daniel Sturridge all having the ability to cause Conte’s men some problems.


However, there are still question marks surrounding Klopp’s side, especially when they lost 2-0 to newly promoted Burnley in their second match of the season.

Either way, it’s sure to be a pulsating affair in London on Friday night as two of the league’s most eccentric managers go head-to-head with an equally eccentric defender making his second debut.
