Douglas Luiz hits out at reporter for posting 'disrespectful' video of his girlfriend Alisha Lehmann

Douglas Luiz has hit out at a reporter after he 'disrespected' the Aston Villa star's girlfriend Alisha Lehmann.

Luiz, 24, is dating Lehmann, 23, who also plays for Villa.

And he jumped to the defence of his partner following a derogatory post on social media.

Milton Neves, a 71-year-old Brazilian TV host, shared a video of Lehmann celebrating a goal by jumping and turning her back.

The clip was accompanied with the message: "Without returning to the video, what number was on her shirt?"

Neves' post didn't do down well - rightfully so - with Luiz, who slammed his fellow countryman's social media post.

The Brazilian midfielder quote-tweeted the post and wrote: "You are old, (with) years in football and post a video that doesn't respect women's football nor the player who, in this case, is my girlfriend. 

"You never learned what respect is! Damn!"

The tweet which he replied to has since been deleted.

Luiz has been dating Lehmann since November.

They confirmed their relationship after she uploaded a picture of them together on Instagram.

Lehmann, who joined Villa last summer from West Ham United, is also a Switzerland international.

As for Luiz, he's played seven games in all competitions for Villa this term, scoring two goals.

He's out of contract at the end of the season and was linked with a move to Arsenal during the summer transfer window.
