- July 17, 2014
After the announcement on Wednesday that Filipe Luis would leave Atletico Madrid for Chelsea, the Brazilian full back gave a press conference to outline his reasons for leaving Vicente Calderon for Stamford Bridge.
Filipe Luis was full of praise for Chelsea, said he had been following them ever since he had arrived in European football and has visited London on a number of occasions.
The left-back also added that he was impressed with the Blues when Chelsea faced Atletico Madrid in the Champions League last season.
As you would expect, Filipe Luis also had high praise for the Atletico Madrid supporters after plenty of success in Spain, including the La Liga title last season.
Chelsea now have four players from last season’s Atletico Madrid team in their first team squad going into the 2014/2015 season: Diego Costa, Tiago, Thibaut Courtois and Filipe Luis.
