Chelsea fans cheered the substitution of Jorginho during Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Wolves on Sunday.
Jorginho was brought off in the 72nd minute of the 1-1 draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers for Willian, with Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri also changing the formation to a 4-2-3-1.
Sarri has defended Jorginho and stated that he must ‘play in every condition’ after Chelsea fans cheered his substitution.
“Jorginho, if the other players don’t move without the ball, is in trouble. He is really very able to play at one touch, but if you want to play one touch you need movements from the other players,” Sarri said.
“Then, in the last 20 minutes, Jorginho is not suitable for 4-2-3-1. So it was only a consequence of the change of system, not the performance. I know him very well. He can go in trouble if all the rest of the team are not moving.
“He is a very strong character and a professional player. He has to play in every condition.”
