Luiz said: “I went to Paris for two years and won all the titles in France.
“I had a great life. I had everything in Paris and then I took a risk to come back to one country that was not that happy with me.
“That’s why it was a risk. And I love the risk. In your life if you don’t take a risk you’re not going to taste something new. Not just in your professional life, I think it’s every day.
“I cut my salary to come back here. But it’s okay. God has given me a lot so I’m very happy with this.
“I don’t like to stay always with the easy life so that’s why I took the risk, and today I am very happy. It was the right decision.”
Luiz has a FA Cup winners’ medal, but he missed the 2012 final with a hamstring injury.
He said: “I don’t want to miss this one. I want to play, I want to try to give my best for the team.”
