What keeps David Luiz going?

July 5, 2014 | 0

David  Luiz, Brazil’s star footballer who was instrumental in bringing the team to semi-finals of the World Cup 2014 is known for his deft foot-work, his quirky hairstyle and his humane nature. Even after the team defeated Colombia 2-1 ,  David was seen consoling David Rodriguez, the star of the Colombian team. In fact, both the players scored goals in the quarter finals.

The friendship between the two was apparent as the two exchanged jerseys as they walked off the stadium, with Luiz imploring the stadium to congratulate Rodriguez’s game.

Credited the world’s love for his right-footed drive, to well, his right foot, he says, “I think it was genetic, my legs were born like this. I hit the ball at the right point, it is difficult for the goalkeeper and I am happy to help the team.”

The 27 year old (born April 22, 1987), whose full name is David Luiz Moreira Marinho, played for the French club ‘Paris Saint Germain’ and is the vice-captain of the Brazil national team.  He started out playing for Vitoria, before he was shifted to Benfica just before turning 20. He played for the club for the next five seasons before he joined Chelsea in 2011. By June 2014, David Luiz was picked to play for Paris Saint-Germain for an astronomical fee for £50 million, which is the highest paid money ever for a defender.

A devout Christian, David Luiz says, “Everything in life belongs to God. Our purpose has already been mapped out.”

David Luiz has a girlfriend called Sara Maderia from his  Benfica days. The girl is from Portugal. The beautiful Sara was born on June 24, 1990 and likes to follow her boyfriend’s game with avid interest.  She is practicing dentistry as a profession.
