Jorginho warns Chelsea must learn from ‘mistakes’ to regain strength


Chelsea midfielder Jorginho says the club must learn from its mistakes if it is to become a Premier League force again.

The Brazilian, who lifted the Europa League with the Blues last season, has hinted that the club has made too many changes in recent seasons.

Chelsea has had three head coaches in the past four years.

Jorginho, who moved to Stamford Bridge in July 2018 for £ 57 million, said: “When it started we ended up doing more than expected. But we did it very quickly! And then the wait was up there for us to keep what, honestly, was not what we were ready to do.

“Change of so many players, change of coach. I’m not even going to talk about the youth problem, which has a lot of young players this year.

“But it’s normal, if you stop to assess our team, our team, it’s normal that we make these mistakes. And it is normal that we should grow, learn from it to reduce errors and be up there.

“Sometimes, honestly, there is a lack of group experience, understanding of the moments in the game, you know? Sometimes you can’t attack, attack, attack. Sometimes you have to hold on a bit. So whether you like it or not, I think it’s also a matter of time before you can grow up. “

Jorginho remains a target for Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri, who took him to Stamford Bridge from Naples.

But the player’s agent, Joao Santos, said this week that he was happy in London.

Santos said: “Neither Sarri nor [Juve’s chief football officer] Fabio Paratici called me for information about Jorginho.

“To date, I know absolutely nothing about this situation. The boy is very happy in London, where he has proven himself and is still three years on his contract. ”
