Arsenal defender Luiz: Emery? I don't judge anybody

Arsenal defender David Luiz won't consider criticising of former manager Unai Emery.

Recently, Emery gave an interview to France Football in which he said “some stars did not have the right attitude and asked for more than they gave".

Such comments from Emery could have prompted a backlash from members of the Arsenal squad but, when asked for his view on them, Luiz said: “I think Unai is a great coach, a great person.

“The things didn't work very well, especially the results, and it's normal to try to find some answers with his vision.

“I don't judge nobody. I still have a lot of admiration for him and I think it's not intelligent from my point of view if I say something.

“I think he was a great, great guy, a great coach. In football we need the results, if the results aren't coming everybody is going to try to find why and everybody has his vision.

“I think he has his vision and we have to accept that in a nice way and in a humble way."
