Former Blues manager Jose Mourinho came out to the media to claim that Chelsea’s midfielder Jorginho is best midfielder in Europe.
The Portuguese football manager talked about his influence in the team, despite his large criticism throughout the 2018/19 campaign with the Blues.
The Italy international, who joined the Stamford Bridge outfit back in the summer of 2018 in a reported fee worth £50 million, has been deployed in the Blues defensive midfield position that saw N’Golo Kante move to the flank of the midfield.
Jorginho has almost been ever present in the Maurizio Sarri’s team, having struggled to adapt with the English football this season and suffering several critics for the club’s supporters throughout the campaign.
However, from the looks of it former Chelsea manager Mourinho is on the same table as Sarri about the Italian midfielder’s quality.
The Portuguese manager speaking to beIN Sports, has tagged the Chelsea midfielder as one of the best in all of Europe.
Speaking he said: “For me, Jorginho is the best midfielder in Europe. He has a quality that no-one else has: the way he controls the game, how he recovers the ball in transition and how he can withstand the pressure. I don’t see others like him around.”
