Jorginho says he has improved as a player since his move to Chelsea FC.

The Italy international has established himself as a key part of the Blues team since his £57m move to Chelsea FC from Napoli in 2018.

Jorginho was signed by Maurizio Sarri after the Italian head coach brought the playmaker from his former club Napoli to the west London outfit.

The Brazilian-born player has scored two goals in 37 games in the Premier League last term to help Chelsea FC finish in third place in the table.

Jorginho’s future was left in doubt after Sarri quit Chelsea FC to take over the reins of Serie A giants Juventus in the summer.

However, new Chelsea FC boss Frank Lampard has kept faith in Jorginho in the current campaign.

Jorginho believes he has grown as a player over the past 12 months at the Stamford Bridge outfit.

“I think I had a fantastic first season and it was fundamental for my growth process. I am stronger in defence now, I go into challenges with more determination and control the game,” Jorginho is quoted as saying by Football.London.

“The Premier League has forced me to develop different skills.”

Chelsea FC were 4-1 winners against Arsenal in the Europa League final back in May.

The Blues have collected five points in four Premier League games so far to make a solid if unspectacular start to the campaign.

Chelsea FC are currently in eleventh place in the Premier League table – and the west London outfit will return to Premier League action with a trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday 14 September.
