Not too long ago, Jorginho was very unpopular among the Chelsea fans, and he was booed during a Europa League game against Malmo in February.

Jorginho was signed by Maurizio Sarri for over £50m and was a key player in Maurizio Sarri’s Sarri-ball system, which infuriated the Chelsea fans as Sarri played him at the base of midfield and pushed N’Golo Kante from his favoured position.

However, Chelsea fans have now taken Jorginho to heart and appreciated him in the 3-2 win over Norwich by chanting his name.

Blues boss Frank Lampard sees Jorginho as a very important player for the club and believes that the fans have seen his improvement and values.

When asked whether he heard the chants, Lampard said: “I was delighted to hear that myself.

“I do think that with fans, they are generally pretty honest. What they’re seeing is a player – I don’t want to talk about last year – but what they are seeing now is a player who has a drive, has a determination as a team player. I’m certainly seeing that.

“He also has quality. He can change a game, lead a game, own a game from midfield areas. I’m delighted with that. I see day-to-day what playing for this club means.

“He’s just a fantastic sportsman who cares deeply. When you have a training session that might fall below standard or drop for a moment, he’s the one who drives it up again.

“When the fans see that on the pitch, as they did at Norwich, that’s why they sing his name. I’m delighted with that.”
