David Luiz believes Chelsea will rue letting him go and feels Frank Lampard also had ‘lots to offer’ the club.
Jose Mourinho decided to cash in on Luiz prior to the World Cup finals, with Paris Saint-Germain taking the distinctive center-half in a £50million deal.
The 27-year-old has moved on after three productive years at Stamford Bridge that delivered FA Cup and UEFA Champions League triumphs.
Luiz feels he played a leading role in those successes and is at a stage in his career where he is reaching is peak.
For that reason, he expects there to be some regrets when Chelsea reflect on the decision to do business with a European rival.
Luiz said in The Sun: “I have to believe that Chelsea or any team will miss me. I’m not arrogant but I’m confident in my own abilities.
“Paris paid a lot for me so they obviously believe in me – it is nice to be at a club where they really want you and where they show belief in you.”
Luiz has also expressed his surprise at seeing Chelsea allow vastly-experienced midfielder Lampard leave at the end of his contract – freeing him to sign for New York City and join their sister club Manchester City on loan.
