Maurizio Sarri told new Chelsea FC signing similar to Andrea Pirlo
Chelsea FC legend Pat Nevin raves about new signing Jorginho
Pat Nevin has likened Chelsea FC summer signing Jorginho to Italy legend Andrea Pirlo.
The Blues managed to beat defending Premier League champions Manchester City to the signing of Jorginho.
The Italian midfielder struggled on his debut in a 2-0 loss to defending Premier League champions Manchester City in the Community Shield
Jorginho opened his Blues account with a goal in a 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town in their Premier League opener.
The Italian star struggled to protect the Chelsea FC defence in a 3-2 victory over bitter rivals Arsenal in the Premier League.
However, Jorginho added more creativity to the Chelsea FC midfield alongside N’Golo Kante and Ross Barkley.
Former Chelsea FC star Nevin believes Jorginho has a similar playing style to Italian legend Pirlo.
“Pirlo was amazing in that position,” Nevin told Newstalk. “He sat at the back and sprayed the ball all game.
“He couldn’t tackle. Jorginho is the same. He isn’t as good passing. He controls the pace of the game. He is on the ball all the game.”
Chelsea FC finished in fifth spot in the Premier League table last term to miss out on a Champions League place.
The Blues were 1-0 winners against Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley last term.
