Arsenal fans had been crying out for an experienced centre-half to slot into their first XI all summer.

They waited until transfer deadline day, but did finally get their wish when the club signed David Luiz from Chelsea for £8million.

And former Blues and Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has explained why the Brazilian will be better at Arsenal than he was at Stamford Bridge.

“David is a player [Unai Emery, his former Paris Saint-Germain manager] knows well,” Mourinho said on Sky Sports (via Daily Star).

“He knows what David can give and what David cannot give.

“I think we all know the good qualities of David and where he can improve teams.

Luiz is yet to make his first appearance for Arsenal

“And I think we all know, probably I know a little bit better because I’ve coached him, that sometimes he makes mistakes, but he makes these mistakes especially when his concentration levels are low.

“And when you change to a new club and you have something to prove, I think it’s a good move for him.

“At this moment of his career to get this opportunity of a late move and stay in the Premier League at the highest level, for David, it’s a fantastic move.’
