Brazilian thinks former Porto man is more adventurous than Mourinho and is looking forward to the man management approach practiced by new Stamford Bridge boss
The Blues recently welcomed back Villas-Boas, who was part of Jose Mourinho's team during his time at the club, as the newly appointed manager at Stamford Bridge.
The former Porto man will be seeking to ensure Chelsea do not suffer another trophyless season, whilst also attempting to implement a more adventurous and attacking approach in contrast to the often cautious football of his predecessor, Carlo Ancelotti.
After a remarkable managerial debut season at Porto which attracted widespread praise for the entertaining brand of football played, both Blues fans and players will welcome the change and David Luiz admits he is relishing the opportunity to work with Villas-Boas.
"I have spoken to my friends back in Portugal and I hear the same thing from everyone," he told The People.
"They all say how Andre is very hands-on with the players and he gets his point across from day one.
"That is very positive at a club that dreams of titles. I've not worked under Mourinho, but my friends say Villas-Boas is more attack-minded.
"Perhaps that signifies a change in system for Chelsea in the new season."
