Ex-Chelsea midfielder Vinnie Jones slates Luiz: He hides

Former Chelsea midfielder Vinnie Jones has hit out at David Luiz after their thrashing at Manchester City.

Luiz was at the heart of Chelsea's defence during the rout and was widely criticised on social media for his performance.

Jones has never been the biggest fan of the Brazil international, who he believes goes missing when the going gets tough.

David Luiz I think he hides when they are losing," Jones said during an appearance on talkSPORT.

“When Chelsea are winning he's pinging 60 yards balls about and looking good.

“Every time Chelsea struggle Luiz will hide. John Terry is a massive hole to fill and he hasn't done it."
