Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has confirmed midfielder Jorginho as Chelsea’s vice-captain.
Jorginho will wear the armband whenever captain Cesar Azpilicueta isn’t on the pitch.
“Jorginho is vice-captain as it stands,” said Lampard.
“Apzi is captain, as you all know, and that was clear at the start of the season. His professionalism and his career here to date speaks for itself.”
Explaining why he chose Jorginho as captain, Lampard added: “Jorginho is a character, a driver and that is very evident to see on the pitch.
“He wants to win, I know that should be the basics for everyone but to show it in everything you do is important and I think he does that.
“From pre-season, he’s been one of the leaders in the dressing room and on the pitch.
“I’m pleased with him and the young players need to look up to that kind of attitude that he has daily.”
