Jorginho names Chelsea FC star who will help him adjust to Stamford Bridge
The new Chelsea FC signing believes Davide Zappacosta will have to role to play in his adjustment to life in the English capital
Jorginho is hoping that Davide Zappacosta can help the Chelsea FC signing to settle at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues pulled off a transfer coup after the FA Cup winners managed to see off competition from Premier League champions Manchester City for the Italy international.
Chelsea FC signed Jorginho in a £57m deal after the west London side outbid Manchester City despite Napoli agreeing to a fee with the Citizens earlier this summer.
Jorginho will link up with his former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge following the Italian coach’s appointment as Antonio Conte’s successor.
The versatile midfielder is the second Italian player in the Chelsea FC squad after the Blues signed Zappacosta from Torino last summer.
Speaking to Chelsea FC’s website about his new team-mates, Jorginho said:
“I know Davide Zappacosta from the Italy team.
“I also know a few others who I played against like Marcos Alonso, Emerson and Alvaro Morata.
“I have not had the chance to get to know them as people but I have come across them on the pitch.
“It is really helpful to have someone here I know like Davide to help me settle in, particularly when I am in another country that I don’t know yet.”
Chelsea FC finished in fifth spot in the Premier League table last term to miss out on a spot in the Champions League.
The Blues won the FA Cup thanks to a 1-0 victory over Manchester United in the Wembley showpiece after Eden Hazard’s winner from the penalty spot.
Chelsea FC have finished outside the top four places twice in the past three seasons.
Jorginho helped Napoli finish as runners up behind Juventus under Sarri last term.
