Italy international, Jorginho, has vowed to win over Chelsea fans who are doubting his ability wrong after a difficult start to life at Stamford Bridge.
The Italy international joined manager Maurizio Sarri in swapping Napoli for Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2018 as the Blues beat Manchester City to his signature in a £57 million ($86m) deal.
Seen as key to ‘Sarri-ball’, the Italian manager has been reluctant to alter Jorginho’s role in his team despite a drop in results and calls for N’Golo Kante to be returned to the role he thrived in during his first two campaigns in the capital.
Matters came to a head when Chelsea hosted Malmo in the Europa League as Jorginho was booed throughout the 3-0 victory over the Swedish outfit.
Despite that, the Brazilian-born star is not about to change the way he plays and instead hopes to convince supporters that he is worth his place in the side going forward.
“Of course, in this day and age everything reaches you quickly,” he told ESPN Brasil when asked whether he had heard the jeers at the time. “With technology everything is very fast.
“The important thing is to know how to deal with the situation. I remained calm because I know this is what fans are like, if you’re not winning they will complain and they have the right to do so.
“But I always stay focused and keep working. And I’m sure I’ll be able to show what I’m capable of and make them change their minds.”
