Chelsea defender Luiz: Benfica still special to me

Chelsea defender David Luiz admits he still has a fondness for Europa League final opponents Benfica.

He says signing for Chelsea has made him world famous.

Luiz explained: "When I arrived at Benfica I was an unknown player in Brazil and Portugal. And I became known in Portugal before Brazil. But now I'm recognised all around the world. This is something I really like. It's positive for my career.

"I've shown my ability and it has brought results."
