David Luiz 'still thirsty' for Champions League glory

Chelsea defender David Luiz has said he is "still thirsty" for Champions League glory ahead of Chelsea's semi-final against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday night.

The Brazilian defender was part of the Chelsea side who lifted the famous trophy in 2012, and he is keen to repeat the feat in the final next month.

"We are all enthusiastic, playing in a semi-final is important for all. Atletico have great history and have won many titles. It's a dream to play in a semi-final, I was lucky enough to play [in the final] two years ago and I'm still thirsty for it," Luiz said.

"Everybody has a dream, tomorrow will be a great game and I'm privileged to play in such big matches.

"I think we have a great team, we've managed to reach the semi-final, we all want to win and let's hope we can get to the final."

Jose Mourinho insisted his only focus was Chelsea's Champions League semi-final against Atletico Madrid as he refused to discuss the London side's domestic difficulties.

"If you want to speak about the Premier League you have 19 teams in England that you can speak with," Mourinho said.

"We are lucky to be involved in the Champions League, so we are lucky that in the next two days we don't think about the Premier League and what's happened and what is going to happen because now we only think about (the match)."

Mourinho has never led Chelsea into the Champions League final after previously losing against Liverpool in two semi-finals during his previous stint as manager.
