Chelsea defender David Luiz has admitted that he wishes to return to Portugal one day and win the Champions League with Benfica.

David Luiz has strong bonds with his former club Benfica. He wants to represent the club some time later in his career, whether as a player or a manager.

He said: “My dream is to return to Benfica and become European champions with them.

“I don’t know whether it will be as a coach or a player, but I want to go back there.”
