The former Chelsea defender, who won the Premier League and Champions League with the club, has been a disaster alongside Sokratis at the back for Arsenal this season.
And with the Blues in fourth position and TEN points above not managing Arsenal, jubilant fans were quick to appreciate former stalwart for his awful performances.
Reacting, a Chelsea fan said : “Selling David Luiz for 8m has to be one of the best bits of business we’ve done in recent times. Mans cost them so many games this season and people actually thought he was going to improve them when he’s actually made them worse”.
Another commented: “Lol, my God David Luiz is such a liability in defense. Gets beaten in so many different ways. He’s a complete defender from that aspect. Full arsenal of ways to allow a goal.”
One said “Thank you @DavidLuiz_4 you’ve made Chelsea so much money in transfers to PSG n @Arsenal respectively..you left my club for another rival thinking you were going a step forward..instead you’ve made football better with your expect defensive play..enjoy getting relegated”.
Another added: “Thanks mate @DavidLuiz_4 Chelsea legend!”
Even non Chelsea fans were making jest at the badly out-of-form Gunners: “Yo who remembers when Arsenal fans acted like they were gonna win the league when they signed Pepe and David Luiz?”
“Chelsea really did Arsenal dirty by selling them David Luiz”, another said.
The Gunners brought Luiz in to improve on a leaky defence that conceded 51 goals in the Premier League last season.
Though they have already managed to ship 23 in 15 games this season, and have not won a league match since October 6.
