Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has made a massive admission about new teammate Jorginho.

Lukaku signed up for Chelsea this summer and has only played two games for the Blues since his signing.

The Belgian has spoken highly of Chelsea midfielder Jorginho and has admitted that he didn’t know that the Italy international was this good.

Jorginho dictated play in the middle of the park when Italy faced Belgium, and Belgium with their golden generation of players were defeated by the Italy national team.

“I see someone like Jorginho every day now,” Lukaku explained to VTM Nieuws (via Voetbal Nieuws) about Belgium’s defeat to Italy in the quarter-finals

“That guy is really good at football.

“I also played two years against Insigne, who plays at the top of his game. They were all top.

“Tactically, we were outclassed, but also football-wise. And that hurt.”
