Cape Town - Chelsea
defender David Luis has revealed that he took a pay cut when he decided
to sign for the Blues for a second time in his career.
The Brazilian surprised many when he returned to Stamford Bridge in
August last year to kick off a second spell at the club, leaving Ligue 1
giants Paris Saint-Germain in the process.
The 30-year-old admitted that he took a risk and a cut in pay when he
decided to leave PSG and join Antonio Conte's Chelsea side, but the
move paid off in other ways as he helped the Blues claim the Premier
"I don't always like the easy life," Luiz said, according to Goal. "That's why I took a risk and I'm very happy. It was the right decision."
"I love the risk. In your life if you don't take a risk you're not
going to taste something new. Not just in your professional life, I
think it's every day.
"I cut my salary to come back here. But it's OK. God has given me a lot so I'm very happy with this."
