Former Chelsea captain Dennis Wise has hailed Chelsea’s signing of Jorginho, and he believes the summer signing has been “absolutely outstanding” for Chelsea and that his relationship with manager Maurizio Sarri will be key to the Blues’ future success.
The Blues legend has been watching the Italy international closely, having travelled to some of the club’s pre-season games ahead of the new campaign, and he has hailed the instant impact of the 25-year-old.
“I like the boy [Sarri] has brought in, Jorginho, I think he has been absolutely outstanding,” Wise told Goal in an exclusive interview.
“I have watched him and how he covered holes, how he pressed and he dictates to his team-mates as he wants them to do certain things.
“I think by bringing in Jorginho, you bring in someone who knows Sarri very well and how he plays and what he wants to do.
“When you have someone right in the middle of that midfield who understands how the manager plays and dictates that to everyone, I think it is really helpful and he has so much quality as well.
“I think he has given the ball away once over the whole pre-season. I am actually looking forward to seeing him progress over the course of this season.”
