Jorginho has insisted that he is working hard to change the minds of the Chelsea FC fans who booed him during the Europa League last-32 victory over Malmo last month.

The Italian has been getting used to life at Stamford Bridge after having signed for the Blues from Napoli following the appointment of Maurizio Sarri in the summer last year.

The 27-year-old has been a regular fixture in the Blues team this season, scoring one goal in 26 Premier League games for Sarri’s men.

However, it would be fair to say that he is yet to hit top form for the west London side since his move from Italy last year.

Jorginho was handed a frosty reception when he replaced Ross Barkley in the second half of the win over Malmo last month.

But the midfielder has insisted that the Blues fans are entitled to their opinions and he will do what he can to change their minds.

Speaking in an interview with ESPN, Jorginho said: “With technology, we see everything [said about us] – and very quickly. The important thing is to know how to deal with the situation.

“I am calm because fans are like that: when you don’t win, they complain. They have the right to complain, but I remained calm.

“I will continue to do my job and, without doubt, I believe I can show my worth and change their minds.”

Jorginho will be hoping to feature when Chelsea FC return to Premier League action on Sunday with a trip to Fulham.

The Blues are looking to try and break back into the top four this season.
