Paris Saint-Germain defender David Luiz has dismissed suggestions he is a virgin and accused the media of a lack of respect.
The Brazilian released an Instagram post claiming he "would wait" until he was married to girlfriend Sara Madeira after being baptized earlier this week.

"Some people in the press don’t respect people in life. I can put my head on my pillow and sleep great because I respect everyone. My religion, my baptism, I’m very happy."
Luiz, who scored against Chelsea in the Champions League this season prior to his side’s exit at the hands of Barcelona, says PSG is determined to challenge for the trophy next term, saying,"We are building things."
"I want to win the Champions League next season. I will do everything to win that. Everyone in the club will do the same," he added. "The fans support us a lot, they want that just like us. So we are working together."
