Jose Mourinho: 'Don't blame David Luiz for Brazil's World Cup exit'

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho believes that it would be unfair to single out David Luiz for blame following Brazil's humiliating semi-final defeat to Germany at the World Cup.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has urged fans not to single out David Luiz in their postmortem of Brazil's World Cup semi-final defeat to Germany.

The host nation suffered one of the biggest defeats in the tournament's history in a 7-1 loss to the Germans in Belo Horizonte last night.

Luiz, who was sold by Mourinho to Paris Saint-Germain earlier this summer for a reported fee in the region of £50m, captained the side in Thiago Silva's absence, but was criticised for his defending during the humiliating defeat.

"I don't think it is fair to separate a player from the team, because the team was very bad," Mourinho told Yahoo.

"Did David make mistakes? Yes, he made, but Dante made mistakes, Marcelo made mistakes, Fernandinho made mistakes, the team as a team made mistakes. So I don't think it's fair.

"I think everyone who is in my situation, everyone who is a player, everyone who is a coach, everyone who is not involved in the World Cup but could be in that position, I think all of us, we are feeling really, really sorry for them because it is a historical moment, a moment that will remain forever the same way."

Brazil manager Luiz Felipe Scolari described the loss as one of the worst days of his life.
