Chelsea signing David Luiz: I'm excited to learn under Conte

Chelsea signing David Luiz is excited to be working with manager Antonio Conte.

Chelsea's decision to sign Luiz has been met with surprise and criticism from many pundits, but the Brazil international is confident he will prove his worth.

He said: "I have tried to improve and mature day by day. When you try new things of course you improve, that's why I tried a new league.

"But I want to continue to improve here. I never want to think that I know everything. I want to learn every day. I feel at home, I feel like I never left. I have a great relationship with everyone.

"The coach (Conte) loves football, that's why he's a passionate guy on the bench, celebrating and supporting the team.

"He's a specialist in tactics and training in a tactical way, I'm excited to learn under him.

Every single coach has been important in my professional life. I want to learn, especially with him and his Italian style in a tactical way, this can make the difference."
