DOUGLAS LUIZ has leapt to the defence of his girlfriend after a journalist made a “disrespectful” post towards her.
Luiz, 24, is dating Aston Villa women’s star Alisha Lehmann and took issue with a post directed towards her.
Douglas Luiz leapt to the defence of his footballer girlfriend on social media
Luiz has been dating Alisha Lehmann since last November
Luiz took offence when a journalist made a “disrespectful” post regarding one of Lehmann’s celebrations
The post in question saw Lehmann celebrate a goal with journalist Milton Neves saying: “Without returning to the video, what number was on her shirt?”
“You never learned what respect is! Damn!”
The post which Luiz replied to has since been deleted.
Luiz has started just twice for Steven Gerrard’s side this season.
However, following an injury to Boubacar Kamara, Luiz is set to get an extended run in the team which should last until at least the World Cup.
The Brazilian was the subject of interest from Arsenal on deadline day of the transfer window, but with no time to replace him Villa demanded a fee far beyond what The Gunners were willing to pay.
Luiz is out of contract next summer, and Arsenal may renew their interest in January but may also be joined by the likes of Liverpool.

Lehmann on the other hand has enjoyed a fruitful start since the return of the Woman’s Super League.
The forward has scored and assisted a goal a piece, with both coming in Aston Villa’s 4-3 win over Manchester City.
Luiz and Lehmann confirmed they were dating last November after the pair uploaded a snap on social media.
The pair spent their off-season’s on separate holidays, with Lehmann taking in Miami and Luiz returning to his native Brazil.
