Jorginho became somewhat of a scapegoatunder Maurizio Sarri last season.
During the most difficult periods of the former Napoli boss’ campaign, the Italy international took a lot of the flak for the playing staff. He was seen as the 60-year-old’s favourite pupil after he had joined Sarri at Stamford Bridge last summer from the same club.
However, with the Italian manager having moved on to pastures new at Juventus, the 27-year-old has the chance to free himself of the link to his former manager.
If Frank Lampard fails, would Chelsea fans welcome Jose Mourinho back for a third time?
It seems that some of the Chelsea fans are enamoured with the regista, anyway, and have shared their love of him on social media platform Twitter.
And a fair few of them have even called for Jorginho to be named as the club’s captain. The current leader is Cesar Azpilicueta, but several have revealed their preference for the Blues’ number five to be given the armband.
