Why Sarri should now look away from Jorginho

Timothy Aiyeku




There is no doubt that English Premier League outfit Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has much love for Jorginho, probably because of their relationship as they both came from the Italian Serie A outfit Napoli in the last summer window.

The first decision made by the Chelsea boss is to have Jorginho take over the role of French powerhouse N’Golo Kante at the midfield with the former Leicester City man moved to a more advanced role.

This was met with criticisms with pundits disagreeing with the Italian boss on his decision as they affirm that N’Golo Kante is the right man as the midfield holder. Jorginho was heavily criticized and blamed for his poor outing against Man City which led to their embarrassing defeat.

Whoever, Maurizio Sarri has been told he has no reason to stick to Jorginho as he has got Ethan Ampadu to count on for the job.

Ethan Ampadu who failed to make an impact in the first opportunity given to him against Sheffield in the Wednesday FA Cup is tipped to still hold the key to the club’s future because of the potentials that are glaring for all to see.

However, pundits have held the opinion that Kante is allowed to return back to his natural role.
