Luiz said he almost left Stamford bridge but Maurizio sarri made me to stay.
The Brazilian said he was ready to quit Chelsea this season had Antonio conte remained as manager.
David said the arrival of sarri made me to stay at chelsea rather than pushing a move to another club.
The Brazilian added by comparing Maurizio sarri and his former coach when in Benfica jorge Jesus saying that their style is of no different.
Sarri quickly moved away from using a three man defence after taking charge in the summer.
In the same interview, the former Napoli boss said: “I tried to do it six years ago but after two or three matches I realised that for me it’s impossible.”
Despite winning the Premier League in 2017 under Conte in a 3-4-2-1 system that seemed well-suited to his game, Luiz believes that he is best when deployed in a back four.
“I already played more in my life in a back four than a back three,” he said. “I start to play back three when I was 17 then I come back to play a back three two years ago here.
“I think I’m more adept with a back four than a back three.”
However, he had other disputes with Conte besides tactics and team shape to the extent that he would have forced his way out had the Italian remained in charge this season.
