Frank Lampard reveals Jorginho’s reaction to Chelsea selection snub amid N’Golo Kante injury

Frank Lampard has stated that Jorginho has been nothing but professional despite failing to play a single minute of Premier League action for Chelsea since the restart.

The Italy had been a regular starter for the Blues over the course of the 2019/20 campaign, however that has changed since football returned to England.

N’Golo Kante has played in the deeper, holding role since the return of football, the position which Jorginho would usually take up.

With World Cup winner impressing, the 28-year-old has been unable to get into the side, not being played in either of the other two midfield positions as well.

“he has been very professional about it,” Lampard said. “He wants to play as every player does. It is one of the hardest parts of the job is telling a player who is not playing, or picking a squad and leaving out players.

“Particularly when they are not training well and Jorginho always trains well. But he has handled it professionally and that’s what I would expect.

“It is important for players in a long season, with the competitive squad that we have, that they are there to support players when they are out, and he has done that. So we will see with my selection tomorrow.

“I don’t want to go into the personal details of positional and tactical. I just have to pick a team as I see best. They are just my choices.”
