Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel, has identified Jorginho as the Blues player who sacrifices himself for the club.
According to Tuchel, Jorginho is super important in Chelsea’s squad.
The German stated this following Chelsea’s Premier League 3-2 win over Leeds United on Saturday.
Chelsea defeated Leeds United at Stamford Bridge, thanks to Mason Mount’s strike and Jorginho’s penalty brace.
“He [Jorginho] is super important,” Tuchel said at his post-match press conference.
“He sacrifices himself for many weeks actually. I knew this moment would come where he suffers because he played [UEFA] Champions League, then played in Europe with Italy, then qualifiers for the World Cup, so it wasn’t only physical effort for him but it was mentally very demanding.
“He had no pre-season, started the Super Cup straight away, so I knew there would be a point in the season he does not feel fully fit. But Jorgi is fully aware of the situation and has sacrificed.
“He has been working for hours and hours with the physios and medical department to get himself in the best shape possible.”
The result against Leeds means Chelsea are in the third position on the Premier League table behind Manchester City and Liverpool after 16 games.
