Brazilian star not concerned by lack of action.
Chelsea defender David Luiz has insisted that he is not worried about the state of his future at the club despite not being guaranteed a regular starting spot by boss Jose Mourinho, Sky Sports reports.
Luiz has not been able to get a hold on a starting spot for very long this season and has been in and out of the first team as he battles John Terry and Gary Cahill for a place in the Chelsea back line.
The Brazilian international was left out of the side’s previous two encounters with Schalke and West Bromwich Albion despite featuring in the 2-0 defeat to Newcastle at the beginning of the month.
However, Luiz has insisted that he is not concerned about his current lack of action as he believes that if he continues to work hard then he will be playing again in no time.
“It will be like it has always been, I am never worried,” Luiz told UOL. “I train hard and seriously every day, he has his options.”
Brazil manager Luiz Felipe Scolari has refused to get involved in any issues with Mourinho over his decision not to play Luiz.
“It depends on the managers and the clubs where they play if the players will be starters,” said Scolari.
“When I call up someone for the national team, I do so based on my observations. I won’t interfere in their job because I don’t want any of them to interfere in my call ups.”
