Jorginho
 
Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, has declared he will have a new role for Jorginho next season.
 
Lampard, addressing the media in Singapore, also hailed the midfielder’sleadership qualities, saying the Brazilian “drags up” his team-mates when they need it.
 
Jorginho became a target for Chelsea’s boo boys last season, with fans lambasting him for passing sideways and declaring their discontent that Maurizio Sarri appeared to prefer him to N’Golo Kante.
 
But it appears the former Napoli man, will get a fresh chance to impress as the new season approaches.
 
“It’s not only his quality on the ball. We know all about that from last year, his comfort on the ball and the bravery he shows.

“It’s not normal to receive the ball in tight areas and to deal with it – and to keep doing it constantly.

“His attitude in training has also been first class. He’s a driver of a session. He’s a voice.

“He runs, he pushes people around him, he drags people up when he doesn’t feel they’re working as much as he might want – and I’ve loved seeing that.

“So in terms of first impressions, working with him for 10 days, I can’t ask for any more. I’m delighted to have him,” Lampard said.
 
He added: “Jorginho became quite a conversation last year. I’ve been there. As a player, sometimes things are out of your control and the conversation carries on very quickly without you.

“He played in one position and the manager had faith in him and it became something that was talked about, possibly too much, but I’m a new manager. I have some new ideas. We might be more adaptable in the way we play.

“I might ask different things of Jorginho or Kante or Ross Barkley or anybody in the team.

“That’s how I want to be. I’m not stuck in a conversation from last year. I’m actually looking at a player who has very much impressed me over the last 10 days and I’m very pleased to have him as part of the squad.”
