Luiz: Abramovich committed to Chelsea


David Luiz is in no doubt that Roman Abramovich is committed to Chelsea despite his absence from matches.

Abramovich encountered problems when renewing his British visa last year and as a result he has not attended a single match at Stamford Bridge all season.

His absence has led to speculation that the Russian billionaire wants to sell the club, but Luiz insists the 52-year-old is still passionate about the Blues and is in regular contact with the staff despite not appearing at matches.

"I had the opportunity to talk with him last week to decide my future," Luiz said. "He loves the club and everything that is inside the club, not just the people. He wants to win everything, he wants to do more.

"It's difficult for him, he has been away but his heart is here. He tries to be involved every single day. He's still really passionate for the club. He has the same hunger, thinking about winning. He doesn't want to lose energy.

"He's the one who built Chelsea - everything at Chelsea changed because of him. The results speak for themselves, 15 trophies in 15 years."
