Arsenal’s 2019/2020 season will not be remembered. The London Premier League squad is ninth in the Premier League and does not show a flamboyant level on the green rectangle.
Among the Gunners who are in turmoil, David Luiz. In the central hinge, the Brazilian who extended his contract by a year this week is not very reassuring. His mistakes jumped into the eyes of former great striker Robin van Persie. The man who went through Arsenal between 2004 and 2012 was not kind to him.
“With David Luiz, if he was 24 or 25, you would say he is potentially world class. He is 33 years old. He has all the skills too because he is confident on the ball, that he can pass, that he can dribble.
He can defend but he just makes too many stupid mistakes which makes him easy for an opponent. The first job you have to do is defend, be strong and trustworthy. If you have more, you can dribble, make great perfect passes but he has to focus on his job, “he said in remarks taken up by the English media.
And if the Dutchman was still on the pitch, he knows how he would have gone about destabilizing the central defender. “If you play against him, I would go towards him, I would almost try to intimidate him and establish physical contact with him and move around him and try to tease him a little because he is vulnerable. David Luiz took it for his rank.
