Why We Extended David Luiz’s Contract -Arsenal Sporting Director

By Abimbola Ogunnaike

Arsenal’s sporting director, Edu, has disclosed that the club extended David Luiz contract because of his importance to the club, his passing and his communication with the team on and off the pitch.

There have been calls for the Gunners not to keep Luiz, following his poor performance in the 3-0 defeat at Manchester City last Wednesday.

The Brazilian came off the bench to replace the injured Pablo Mari and gave away the first two goals.

Luiz also conceded a penalty before he was sent off, and after the game, fans and pundits suggested it would be the last time he would appear in the red and white.

However, Arsenal have another thought and decided to extend his deal for another year.

Speaking on why the club extended Luiz’s contract, Edu told the official website: “I am really happy that we will have these players in our squad for the future.

“They have been part of the long-term technical plan Mikel and I have developed. They bring the right balance to our squad.

“David [Luiz] is a really important player for us. He has played most of our matches this season and has been important for the team. His passing, his communication with the team on and off the pitch. He helps everyone.”
