Chelsea defender David Luiz hit out at his critics in the wake of Saturday's Club World Cup defeat to Corinthians.

Luiz enjoyed an impressive game in the loss.

"Three months ago, two months ago, other people spoke bad about David Luiz and tried to kill me but I have confidence in my life.

"I think I played well. I just try to help Chelsea. I came to Chelsea two years ago and many people didn't know who David Luiz was. In the first month, second month, I did a great job and won some titles. Some people like you, some don't.

"What I want to do is put my head in the pillow and say I worked hard, did my best and I can sleep."
