The key role which is making Jorginho indispensable to Frank Lampard’s Chelsea

Jorginho was one of the Chelsea players who was expected to head out of the club in the summer.

The 28-year-old was left out of the side towards the end of the 2019/20 campaign, with even Billy Gilmour getting the nod over the Italy international.

That sparked rumours that the Blues were willing to part ways with the midfielder, trying to make space for the incomings that the Blues made during the transfer window.

However, a move back to Italy and interest from Arsenal never went through, so Jorginho continued at Stamford Bridge for the 2020/21 campaign.

“When he has some questions or doubts he asks me and I try to help, because my English is not that great,” Jorginho said.

“I have taught him ‘man on’, ‘turn’ or if he is on the other side ‘switch play’. Things you need on the pitch. ‘Man on’, ‘drop’ or ‘up’.

“We try to help each other. That’s what you do on and off the pitch. Thiago is happy here – he is a big personality, a big player with lots of experience.
