Chelsea star David Luiz has said that he is not concerned over his future at the club by saying that he has nothing to prove after finding himself out of the starting line up lately, Sky Sports reports.

The Brazilian international returned to the side in Tuesday’s Capital One Cup victory over Swindon Town after he and midfielder Juan Mata made headlines over the weekend for being left out of the squad to face Fulham.

But the centre-back insists he is not fazed at being left out, suggesting it is part and parcel of playing for a top team like Chelsea.

“It was just one game,” Luiz said. “Sometimes when other players go out of the team, people don’t say anything.

“I don’t need to prove anything. Everyone knows who David Luiz is, I want to play football and enjoy myself on the pitch so when I have an opportunity to play, I want to enjoy just that.

“I am just one player in the team. Sometimes the manager can put me in, sometimes not. It’s his choice.”

Jose Mourinho made wholesale changes from the team that beat Fulham for the encounter with the League One side with Luiz and Mata  just two of the players that came in, and Luiz insisted that there was no pressure to perform.

“We don’t have to prove anything,” he said. “We just have to show that we want to play.

“Everyone had an opportunity to play and show our football and that’s it.

“This is a big club and we have many, many good players. If Chelsea just had 11 players we could win nothing.”
