When asked what kind of style he likes to employ on the pitch, Luiz pointed to his country as a big influence on his on-pitch methods.

"I think I play with happiness, I play from the soul," he said.

"In Brazil you start to learn when you are a kid just to play the ball and enjoy. And here [in England] it's totally different. The kids already know about tactics. So it's a big difference. I love to play with the ball."
