Mourinho: £50M David Luiz never Chelsea first-choice

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says he didn't rate David Luiz as a first-choice.

The Blues have off-loaded Brazil defender David Luiz, 27 to French champions PSG for a whopping £50m.

That was good business and Mourinho said: "David did important things here, was always a good professional and we'll miss him as a good guy.

"But from a football point of view we believe our squad is better this season than last year - when David was not even a regular."
