Jorginho respond to fans calling him 'Sarri's son'

Jorginho respond to fans calling him 'Sarri's son'

"My start at Chelsea made me miss it [Napoli] even more," Jorginho wrote for The Players' Tribune.

"We all remember what they were saying, right? I was too slow. I was too weak. I was Sarri’s son. Man, it made me so angry. 

"But listen, they underestimated me. You see, I’ve had a turbulent start at every club I’ve been with. Every club. It’s incredible.

"When I came to Verona, nobody wanted me. They sent me on loan to the fourth division. Nobody wanted me there either. But I kept working and I won respect.

"I went back to Verona and we went up to Serie A.

"I had a hard year at Napoli, too, and then Sarri came and changed everything.

"So the Chelsea stuff? Puh! I just used the criticism as fuel.

"I was thinking, 'these people are going to be embarrassed'.

"And now I’m sitting here with a Europa League title and a Champions League title. So to all the critics, I just want to say one thing. 

"Thank you. Really, thank you all."

Jorginho moved to Chelsea in 2018 on a £50m transfer. Many fans doubted him in his first season at the club as they questioned Sarri's tactics that hugely dependent on the midfielder.

But the Italo-Brazilian was a starter under Lampard, and he has become one of Chelsea's most important players under Tuchel.

There are shouts for Jorginho to win Ballon d'Or this season. And while it will most likely go to Leo Messi, the fact that a midfielder who does not really score or assist is in contention for football's most prestigious award says a lot about his quality.
