There are many players littered throughout Arsenal’s squad that we can’t quite figure out for better or worse. One of the best examples of that is David Luiz, who continues to provide us all with moments, both good and bad, that leave you considering what his legacy is going to be when he hangs up his boots for good. Some days he scores the winner in a vital Premier League game, and then the next he puts in one of the worst performances we’ve seen from a centre-back in years. It’s all about swings and roundabouts, of course, but that can be a bit too chaotic sometimes.
On the less ambiguous side of things, though, Luiz has been spending some time visiting Rwanda as part of Arsenal’s partnership with the Visit Rwanda brand.
“It has been incredible to learn about this wonderful country and experience the welcoming spirit of the Rwandan people. I came with the curiosity to learn about the country, considering what it went through 25 years ago. I have to say I was inspired by how fast it has moved forward and how it has become a progressive, fast-growing nation with so many amazing things to see and do.
“My family and I are so thankful for the opportunity to come here and see the passion of football fans, experience Rwanda’s culture and witness breath-taking scenery. From trekking to see mountain gorillas to watching local football and mixing with fans of all ages, it has been a humbling and wonderful experience. We can’t wait to come back and see even more of this beautiful country. I’m going to recommend all my friends to spend their holidays in Rwanda.”
That kind of charitable work is always going to get him on board in the eyes of many fans, but this is a ruthless game and a lot of supporters will only be happy if they get one thing and one thing only: and that’s results. Luiz has been incredibly hit and miss so far at the back, but one thing is for sure – he’s the kind of player you can’t help but keep your eyes on because you just don’t know what the guy is going to do next.
Either way, we’re excited to see what the future holds for the Brazilian, but that excitement is certainly mixed in with a little bit of trepidation.
Can Luiz be an elite defender for Arsenal?
