Despite guiding Chelsea to a third place finish and Europa League trophy, former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri was heavily criticised by fans.

Under Sarri, Chelsea were branded boring and ineffective with the team having lots of possession but lacking a cutting edge.

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho arrived from Napoli in the summer of 2018 with Sarri and was seen by the former Chelsea boss as key in Sarri-ball. Just like Sarri, Jorginho was heavily criticised by fans and was even booed when he came on for a Europa League game in February.

Despite Sarri being the man that brought him to Stamford Bridge and having played under Sarri for the last four seasons, Jorginho insists he wasn’t sad to see Sarri leave Chelsea this summer.

According to Jorginho, he wasn’t sad to see Sarri leave because the time had come for the both of them to go their separate ways after four years of working under Sarri.

Asked if he was sad to see Sarri leave, Jorginho told Sky Sports: “No, I wouldn’t say I was sad.

“He was my coach and we had worked together for four years but the time had come to go separate ways and I am very thankful to him for giving me the opportunity and everything I learnt from him, but now it is a new page and I have a new coach and I have to work hard and learn a lot. We have to look ahead.”
