PSG defender Kimpembe hails Chelsea veteran Luiz: So important in my career

PSG defender Presnel Kimpembe has paid tribute to former teammate David Luiz.

Kimpembe says the Chelsea defender was a huge influence on him during their time together in Paris.

He told Bros Stories: "I worked a lot with David Luiz, he helped me a lot with my defensive work.

"The movement of the arm, at the moment of contact with the ball. It's all an art he'll say. He had noticed that I did not use my weak foot much. At the end of training, he said to me all the time, we'll continue for another 20 minutes outside. I asked him why. And he told me, we're going to work. I owe him a lot and I thank him very much."
