Luiz warns Mourinho against defensive play

Paris Saint-Germain defender David Luiz has warned Jose Mourinho that telling Chelsea to sit back against his side would be a dangerous tactic.

The Ligue 1 giants head to Stamford Bridge tonight needing a goal after the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie finished 1-1 in France.

Luiz, who left Chelsea in June for the largest transfer fee ever paid for a defender, says that he knows what Mourinho will be telling his team before the second leg.

But the 27-year-old, who urges his team to believe that they can advance, feels that the Portuguese’s usual approach could be dangerous for the hosts.

“I know how Jose will prepare for this; he will be telling the boys to be patient and hit us on the counterattack,” Luiz said.

“He knows that we need to score and that they don’t. I know that is his way. We must be careful because I know that Chelsea have the ability to hurt on the counterattack but they must be careful as well.

“To sit back and just defend against Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi can also be very dangerous so it is not just us who have to be careful.”
