David Luiz joins Brazilian club Flamengo

Former Brazil centre-half David Luiz has joined Rio de Janeiro side Flamengo, the club announced on Saturday.

Luiz, who was capped 57 times by Brazil, was without a club after leaving Arsenal in July.

"The people demanded it, the heart shook and now he will be wearing the red and black," Flamengo wrote in a tweet.

Luiz played for Benfica and Paris Saint-Germain but enjoyed his best spell in Europe with Chelsea, where he won the Champions League, two FA Cups and the English Premier League.

The 34-year-old signed a deal until December 2022.
