Paris Saint-Germain defender David Luiz has blasted Chelsea for the way they are treating club-legend John Terry.
The two clubs are set to renew their rivalry tonight in the Champions League Last-16, but just hours before kick-off, Luiz has blasted his former-club for how they are treating a legend.
Chelsea are not prepared to offer Terry a new 12-month deal, meaning he will leave Stamford Bridge on a free transfer at the end of the season, ending his long-term association with the club.
The defender himself has already admitted he wants a new deal and wants to retire at the club, but officials are seemingly not prepared to let him do that despite the service he’s shown them.
Speaking about his former team-mate, Luiz has stuck the knife in on his former-employers and has criticised the way they’re treating the centre-back.
“John is probably Chelsea’s greatest ever player, the club need to show him some more respect,” Luiz told the Daily Mirror.
“He has been clear that he wants to stay at the club, and they are making him wait for an answer.
“That is not how you treat a player who has given you so much and been a big part of so much success. The fans love John – if this is not handled well, they are not going to be happy.
“I am confused why John hasn’t been offered a new contract. He is still the best central defender at the club and one of the best in England, there should be no question about him being offered another a year.
“I really don’t know what to say, the whole situation has confused me. I think it’s obvious to everybody he deserves an extension.”
