Leicester City midfielder James Maddison has singled out Jorginho 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, as quoted by the Leicestershire Live.

“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.”
