David Luiz Moreira Marinho or otherwise known as David Luiz (born on April 22, 1987 in Salvador, Brazil) is a Brazilian U-20 international who currently plays for Sport Lisboa e Benfica.

Luiz shot from almost complete obscurity to become a Benfica mainstay in a matter of weeks at the tail end of the 2006/07 season. As well as his considerable height and robust build, which he is not averse to throwing around when need be, there is his ability to move the ball with grace and ease that has led many to predict a brilliant future for the young Brazilian.


His former club was Esporte Clube Vitória where David made his debut at 16 years of age. At Vitória he quickly established as first-choice with his quick aerial ability and toughness on the field.

In January 31, 2007, David Luiz joined Sport Lisboa e Benfica on loan, and made a somewhat tumultuous debut in UEFA Cup against Paris SG at the Parc des Princes, joining Anderson on the center of the defense, replacing the injured Luisão. Benfica lost the match 2-1, but managed to go through to the next round after winning 4-3 on aggregate.

On March 12, 2007 he played his first Superliga match for Benfica against U.D. Leiria. [1] At the end of the season, Luiz signed a five-year deal with Benfica. On August 5, 2007 he scored his first goal for Benfica in the Torneio de Guadiana against Sporting CP.

Re: David Luiz

Don't know if anyone noticed but.. he will not play more this season.. and might decrease in next portuguese rating changes..

Not seen anything bout this Gibz, is it a serious injury??

He seems to be very injury prone if thats what it is, could end up stalling his career.

Re: David Luiz


He already had this problem before, he put a orthopedic screw in his 5th metatarsi of right foot, he was very plaintive and now the doctors decided to operate him because he will be away a lot of time(3months) and that will coincide with the holidays..
