While replying an Instagram post by Chelsea midfielder Jorginho, Chelsea winger Willian hailed the Italian international as his captain.

Cesar Azpilicueta is actually the team captain at Chelsea while Jorginho was recently promoted by Frank Lampard to the vice-captain role.

After Chelsea’s 1-0 Newcastle on Saturday, Jorginho took to Instagram to encourage his teammates and also thank Chelsea fans for their support.

Jorginho wrote: “Great result. Keep pushing guys. Thanks for your support today.”

Willian replied to Jorginho: “Come on, my captain.”

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard recently hailed Jorginho’s leadership qualities.

Lampard said: “He’s a leader in his personality and whatever happened last year – I wasn’t here and for whatever reason people made judgements. All I can judge is what I see in front of me.

“From pre-season, he’s been one of the leaders in the dressing room and 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.”
