Jorginho attends first Chelsea training

Chelsea new recruit, Jorginho have finally link up with his other team mates at the club. The Italian midfielder who joined Chelsea from Napoli last week for a fee in the region of £57m. The decision to move to Chelsea came after his boss at Napoli, Mourizio Sarri also joined the Blues, this guaranteeing that he will be playing under the person he knows very well. The 26 year old had a fantastic season with Napoli last season and this has attracted many suitors for him.

Jorginho was on the verge of joining Manchester City before Chelsea hijacked the deal in a double swoop for Jorginho and Sarri. With the midfielder resuming training with the rest of the squad, he is set to quickly get with the rest of his team mate and make his debut in the opening premier league game of the club. Chelsea will be hoping to see Jorginho replicate and improve on his performance last season for Napoli.




The future of many Chelsea stars like Eden Hazard and Ngolo Kante have not been completely sorted which might mean that Jorginho might be a very key member of the Chelsea line up for the new season. His quality has however never been in denial but the midfielder has the tendency to be a player that grows into his new environment. Moving from the Serie A to the premier league might also affect his ability to settle down almost immediately.

Going by the attacking style Sarri plays, it will be easy for Jorginho to getgoing almost immediately, and also the fact that Napoli fast paced style is so much welcome and similar to what’s played in England. What makes Jorginho move also a positive for Chelsea is that, if Kante can stay at the club and both play on the midfield, they could be forming a bond that will be difficult to usurp in the league.

Chelsea’s board worm is well cut out for them if the best is to be seen from Jorginho. The Blues should keep their other best players. Letting them leave and bringing in Jorginho with the aim that he will be able to do it alone is what shouldn’t  fathom. A player that haven’t played outside Italy professionally and haven’t had a change in cultural background since his career will have issues moving to a new country except it’s well managed and has players he could mingle with at his new club. Looking at Chelsea, the major player that have played in Italy is Alvaro Morata, who might be leaving this summer could be the one helping Jorginho.

He’s a professional and and it’s expected that he should be able to acclamitise to any condition,  but bringing out the best in their now signing for Chelsea is more for the benefit of the the club. With Chelsea playing in the Europa league, launching an assault to return to the champions league, which means finishing in the top four has to be the aim for the club. Jorginho is one step closer to achieving that, especially after seeing him in his first training. He looks good and sharp for the new season.
