David Luiz has played alongside a host of stellar talents during his career - but he sees something different about Gabriel Martinelli.
The teenage Brazilian forward has made a huge impact since arriving in the summer, and his compatriot feels he is destined for the very top.
"I began admiring him for his work, mentality, his football, and his desire to learn every day," David Luiz said in an exclusive Facebook Q&A.
"I’ve had the chance to meet many players, many young talents from several different countries, and Gabi has something different.
"If he keeps it up, he will experience great things in football. I think that is what has surprised me so far.
"I met his parents, it’s not a coincidence that he has been successful. His upbringing had education, purpose, and it’s a great pleasure to be here with Gabriel.
"He welcomed me here, he was here before me. We try to have the best possible relationship, we help each other out."
