David Luiz insists Chelsea are taking the Europa League seriously.
Some have questioned if the team are motivated to win Europe‚Äôs second-tier competition after the highs of Munich last May. But it is not a theory Luiz is keen to entertain.
‚ÄúYou need to be a champion every day, not just in one final,‚ÄĚ he told the London Evening Standard. ‚ÄúSome people say last season you won the Champions League and now you only have this one.
‚ÄúBut last week I ate chicken and the next I day I had pizza. It‚Äôs different food but still tastes good.
‚ÄúI am very hungry to win titles and to give people many more good feelings and great moments. For sure, if we win the Europa League this year, we will have the same celebrations as we had last year.
‚ÄúIt‚Äôs important we take Sparta seriously from the start. If anyone doesn‚Äôt want to play this game, then they should stay at home.‚ÄĚ
