Brazilian midfielder Jorginho joined Chelsea from SS Napoli some days ago and at Stamford Bridge he will work again with Maurizio Sarri.

Speaking with website Football Italia Jorginho himself admitted the influence Sarri had on his as a player:  “He is someone who does wonderful work, he is right on top of everything that is going on on the pitch”. Jorginho said about Sarri.

When the weekend comes around and you have a game, you start that game knowing how every situation is going to pan out on the field offensively and defensively, and that is something that really helps you in your work. He is a very straight-forward person, he is easy to communicate with, he is very approachable and that is something that also helps the players. 

“I think he had a really big influence on my development as player. He teaches a lot about the game and how you see the game on the field of play, and that helped me to grow.

I think I have the right characteristics as a footballer for the type of football that he likes to play, and the type of football that he teaches and passes on to his team. When we were together at Napoli, it was a case of me taking on his mentality and putting that together with the characteristics I have as a footballer.”

Then, Jorginho said he hopes his style of play will be good for English football and the Premier League: “Perhaps my style of play is not something that is seen in England,” Jorginho explained. “I really hope that it is a good fit for the game over here and I will certainly be doing everything I can to make sure it works out. I like playing just outside of my own penalty box, the player who receives the ball and organises the game”.

JOSE MOURINHO EDEN HAZARD

Former Chelsea boss José Mourinho slams Belgium players for letting his ex star Eden Hazard in the World Cup in Russia:

“I think the Belgium players go home with a bad feeling, a feeling that ‘we could do more and better’ a feeling that probably Hazard out of it because he tried absolutely everything, but many other players kept hiding,” Mourinho told RT.

“They are much better than that, for big occasions, big players were not there in the big occasion.

“The majority of the players were not themselves, in big matches you have to be yourself or a bit better. The big match can make you a bit better, that extra adrenaline, that extra feeling of ‘how big I am’ can only make you better.

“If the big occasion makes you worse than you are then you regret and I think the majority of the Belgium players are having this feeling.”

Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea, now it’s almost official.

Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis is speaking in this moment in a press conference and claimed the deal is about to be closed:

“Sarri is close to be new Chelsea manager, maybe it will be official tonight. My lawyers are in talks with his lawyers to finalise everything,” the Italian businessman claimed, as quoted by CalcioNapoli24.com .

“Everything it’s upon him, let’s see what happens”

Jorginho in the deal? These are separate matters”

“I accepted Manchester City offer for him two weeks ago, but I will have to apologize with them: if the player prefers to live in London rather than in Manchester I can understand him, then if Chelsea proposes him better wages I can understand him even more and I cannot do anything”

“But Jorginho at Chelsea is not linked to the Sarri deal”
