Chelsea midfielder Jorginho admits he’s grateful to Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri for taking him to Stamford Bridge.
Jorginho enjoyed his time with Sarri at Napoli and has since taken his game to a new level with Chelsea.
He told France Football: “It was fabulous at Napoli. Naples isn’t really Italy, it’s like a whole other country, you won’t find the same passion for football elsewhere. I adored that city and that team.
“I had been ready to leave Napoli when Sarri arrived, because he brought Mirko Valdifiori in for my role, but he gave me a chance and I fit perfectly into his tactical system. The big regret is that we didn’t win the 2017-18 Scudetto.
“It was Sarri who wanted me at Chelsea. I was in negotiations with Manchester City and could already see myself in the Citizens jersey, but the Blues were insistent and today I am very happy here.”
