Cesc Fabregas was at Chelsea for just over 4 seasons, making 198 appearances for the Blues and winning 2 Premier League titles alongside one FA Cup in the process.
Speaking to BBC Sport, the Spaniard revealed one of the reasons why he decided to call time on his Chelsea career.
“One of the biggest reasons why I left Chelsea was because of him. He is a very smart player. Intelligent. A good passer of the ball,” Fabregas said of Jorginho to BBC Sport.
“The only thing that sometimes I could say about him is that he releases the ball too quickly when you can play it forward. You can see that he makes the team tick.”
Cesc Fabregas also tweeted out later: “Yes, Jorginho has [improved]. Very important players for both Chelsea and Italy. He’s at the best age.”
Despite the fact that Jorginho is not as good as Cesc was at his peak, the Italian midfielder is certainly a force to be reckoned with. Jorginho’s recent performance for Italy in the Euro 2020 Championship opener shows you how good the former Napoli man can be.
Plus, of course, this sort of praise coming from Fabregas must be huge for the Italian, who joined the Blues the year Fabregas left (2018/19 season).
