Vinnie Jones blasts David Luiz for ‘hiding when Chelsea are losing’

David Luiz

Former Chelsea defender Vinnie Jones believes David Luiz must take more responsibility when his team are struggling after a shambolic display against Manchester City.

The Blues were hammered 6-0 at the Etihad in the Premier League on Sunday, their worst defeat since April 1991.

Footballer-turned-actor Jones, who spent the 1991/92 season at Stamford Bridge before joining Wimbledon, pointed the finger at the Brazilian centre-back after the chastening result.

“David Luiz, I think he hides when Chelsea are losing,” he said on TalkSport

“I saw the game and just thought, ‘what is going on here?’

“When Chelsea are winning, he’s pinging 60-yard balls about and looking good, but every time I’ve seen Chelsea struggle or are losing, Luiz will hide.

“You can’t have that. John Terry was a massive hole to fill and he hasn’t done it for me. He really hasn’t.”
