- David Luiz says he likes Sarri's philosophy on football
- The Chelsea defender has regained his starting shirt
- The Blues have won all four Premier League matches
Chelsea center-back David Luiz has praised new manager Maurizio Sarri's positive approach to life and football.
Luiz was consistently snubbed by former manager Antonio Conte towards the end of last season but has won his place back in Sarri's starting line up.
The London club have won all of their four opening Premier League matches under the Italian tactician and Luiz is delighted with the Sarri's approach.
As reported by Chelsea's official website, Luiz said: "First of all he’s a great person, great as a human. I think his philosophy to live life is already great because he wants to enjoy every day, he wants to be happy and he wanted to take this opportunity to start one more chapter in his life.
"I think that is one of the most important things in life: when you love to do something, when you’re happy.
"So, I believe in this philosophy, and then after that he is a great coach."
The 59-year-old's preferred playing style, which sees his team play short, snappy passes, certainly suits the Brazilian.
The defender has played all 90 minutes in the new Premier League season for Chelsea so far and is relishing working under Sarri.
Luiz said: "He wants to play with the ball, he wants to play with intensity, to work on the details and to give us all the information he can about the next game and the opponent.
"Every week he tries to make the best plan possible for the exact game and this is great because he is working in the best way for the team, for the collective."
If Conte had remained at Stamford Bridge, it is unlikely that Luiz would still be at the club, but the 31-year-old is now one of the club's most important players again.
Chelsea will host to Cardiff City and Luiz will be looking to help his side keep a clean sheet and maintain their 100 per cent record.
Chelsea will also kick start their quest to win the Europa League next week with a trip to take on Greek side PAOK in their group match.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has waxed lyrical over David Luiz - insisting the Brazilian has a 'big future' at Stamford Bridge.
Luiz was frozen under Antonio Conte last season, which cost him a place in Brazil's squad to the World Cup in Russia.
