Under Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea last season, Jorginho played at the base of a midfield three but he is now transitioning to a new system under new Chelsea boss Frank Lampard which employs two holding midfielders.

Jorginho has admitted he likes Lampard’s system because it affords him freedom.

“It is new for me but I like it, I have more space to create,” Jorginho said. “I am more free so I can do many things with my creativity so I like it.”

“I will be there to control and to organise the team,” he added.

“I will stay in the middle and my team-mates can go to attack.

“I don’t know [if I will get more goals and assists], we will see.”

Chelsea finished third in the Premier League last term and won the Europa League, and ahead of the new Premier League season, Jorginho believes Chelsea can achieve good things this season.

“I think we can achieve many good things,” Jorginho said.

Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has spoken of how impressed he’s been with Jorginho since becoming Chelsea manager.

“It’s not only his quality on the ball,” Lampard said. “We know all about that from last year, his comfort on the ball and the bravery he shows.

“It’s not normal to receive the ball in tight areas and to deal with it – and to keep doing it constantly. His attitude in training has also been first class. He’s a driver of a session. He’s a voice.

“He runs, he pushes people around him, he drags people up when he doesn’t feel they’re working as much as he might want – and I’ve loved seeing that. So in terms of first impressions, working with him for 10 days, I can’t ask for any more. I’m delighted to have him.”
