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.
"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.body check tags ::
