David Luiz has been speaking about Blues team-mates Ethan Ampadu and Jorginho, and the Brazilian is full of praise for the duo.

The Brazilian has featured in both of Chelsea's opening two pre-season games and has been partnered up with youngster Ampadu in both.

As quoted by GOAL, the 31-year-old defender has said Ampadu is already playing like a man at just 17-years-old: "He’s a fantastic boy, a fantastic player. He’s humble, he has his feet on the ground, he tries to learn every day. He’s 17, almost 18 but for me he is already a man playing football, he’s great for me to have this opportunity with this youngster who is already a man.

"I have played with many players, different age, different times of life, so it is great to a player like him here. I try to advise him with many things, I have seen a lot of things in my career have lived a lot of things in my career, so I try to help him in the best way because he deserves the best advice."

But David Luiz didn't stop there, new arrival Jorginho was also on the agenda and believes his previous knowhow of Maurizio Sarri's philosophy will be good for the team: "He’s a fantastic player, I’m so happy to play with him.

Jorginho has thoroughly impressed since his arrival in England.
Jorginho has thoroughly impressed since his arrival in England.

"He’s top, top class. He always wants the ball, he’s always in good space, always creates a line to pass. He knows already the philosophy of our coach, so I’m so happy to have this kind of player in our team."

Chelsea next head to Dublin to face London rivals Arsenal and we expect to see the trio in action once again.
