Jorginho’s mom told why the player chose Chelsea rather than City
Jorginho’s mom told why the player chose Chelsea rather than City.
On Sunday, Jorginho will fight with Pep Guardiola’s team for the first time. Last summer, the Brazilian almost joined City as a successor for veteran Fernandinho.
The appointment of Maurizio Sarri as Chelsea’s head coach, as well as the advice of his mother, forced the Italy national team player to reconsider his plans for the future and refuse the Citizens’ offer.
Jorginho’s mother said that her son really wanted to play in Guardiola’s team. But in the summer he asked her what she would choose and she replied that she preferred Chelsea because of traditions, greatness and history of the club.
After Maurizio Sarri was appointed as the head coach of the club, midfielder’s doubts disappeared completely.
