No one can doubt the Brazil international’s humorous personality or his ability to find the net from long range. His defending however, for a £50million centre-back, leaves a lot to be desired.
It appears the Blues sold the now PSG star at just the right time. Not only was he at the epicentre of Brazil’s 7-1 defeat to Germany in the World Cup semi-final, but he’s also committed an absolute howler against Barcelona in the Champions League.
In what continent is this considered marking exactly?

Twitter isn’t best pleased:

Luiz lazy marking gave Barca a quick equalizer. One goal apiece at Camp Nou.
