After being booed by his own fans when subbed on against Malmo in the Europa League last term, Jorginho has managed to fight his way back into the hearts of the Chelsea faithful this season.
Jorginho has had a wonderful start to the season, and Leicester City midfielder James Maddison has singled out the Italy international as one of the best midfielders in the Premier League.
“As a no.8, there is more demand on the out-of-possession stuff, like stopping passes getting through,” Maddison explained.
“The Premier League is the best league in the world, there’s no doubt about it. If you’re not sliding across quick enough to shut those passing lines, the type of players in those positions will just play it through.
“From who we’ve played this season, Jorginho is very good at it. He’s a very good footballer. I know last year he got a bit of stick here and there, but he is very good.”
Maddison is also having a good season and has three goals and two assists in eight matches so far, and Chelsea fans are calling for the club to sign him.
