David Luiz plays down Aguero's latest five-second angry, plays translator for Costa, pays tribute to Chapecoense

New, comments

Four seasons ago, in the 2012-13 FA Cup, a new phrase was born: five-second angry.  That's how David Luiz described Sergio Aguero's two-footed stomp on his backside, a challenge for which, shockingly, Aguero received no punishment.  The FA gonna FA, right?

David Luiz didn't quite use the same terminology this time around, following Aguero's shocking airborne tackle right into the his knees.  The City striker was clearly frustrated by what had happened in the game (no doubt also remembering Luiz's lucky(?) escape for the first incident), but he's not that type of player, right?  Well, this time, it's at least a four-match ban for Aguero, the extra game tacked on because of his sending off earlier this season for an elbow on Winston Reid.  Not that type of player!

Here's David Luiz taking the high road, calling Aguero an amazing player and then changing the topic.

The best part of this post-match interview was the fact that David Luiz was acting as translator for Diego Costa.  It wasn't that long ago that David needed his own translator and his most of his post-match appearances devolved into just clowning around.  What a man, David Luiz!

This interview ended on a somber note, with both Luiz and Costa paying tribute to the lives lost in the Chapecoense air crash.  Both teams paid tribute prior to the match and all three of our Brazilians who played also made special effort to show off the black armbands after the goals Chelsea scored.
