Former Premier League star and current pundit Danny Higginbotham has given his opinion regarding the midfield situation at Chelsea, while also advocating for Ruben Loftus-Cheek to play a more significant role in the starting XI.
Chelsea midfielder Jorginho believes that the Italian national team are improving under the guidance of former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini. The four-time world champions have not won a major international trophy since their 2006 World Cup triumph and had a disastrous 2017 as they failed to secure qualification to the 2018 World Cup.
Jorginho has revealed he chose to join Chelsea rather than Manchester City because of the arrival of Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge.
In the pre-match conference before Chelsea’s match against Cardiff last Saturday, Maurizio Sarri has revealed he has made a decision on who will be the permanent captain of his squad. “I have my idea, I have decided, but before telling you my decision I would like to speak to the players and the club,” said the Italian.
Jorginho has opened up about life in the Premier League, saying the England top flight is different with Serie A in terms of rhythm and physicality.
As Chelsea made a flying start to the new Premier League season with a win away at Huddersfield, plenty of accolades descended on the new midfield signing Jorginho despite a difficult opening half.
Chelsea kicked off their new Premier League season with a 3-0 victory away at Huddersfield. N’Golo Kante opened up the scoring with a simple sidefoot 34 minutes into the match before new signing Jorginho struck from the penalty spot just before the break.
New Chelsea signing Mateo Kovacic has admitted he sought advice from Luka Modric, who played for Tottenham Hotspur as a midfielder, regarding the England top-flight as well as life in London.
Chelsea’s pre-season started in the best possible way with a 1-0 win against Perth Glory in the Australian side’s brand-new stadium. Alvaro Morata and Pedro led the line in Maurizio Sarri’s first game as manager while Jorginho pulled on the blue shirt for the first time since his move from Napoli.
The arrival of Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea inevitably starts a revolution at Chelsea. In his first interview as Blues manager, Sarri emphasized his desire to bring fun and enjoyment both to the players and the Stamford Bridge support with his preferred playing style.
With all the talk at Chelsea currently about the managerial situation as Antonio Conte has parted ways with the club, it is refreshing for fans to see something slightly different. One of the big stories coming out of Cobham is that Italian midfielder Jorginho is now a Chelsea player after being confirmed on Saturday morning.
