CHELSEA ace Ruben Loftus-Cheek has revealed how well Jorginho is fitting in at the club.
The summer signing arrived from Napoli in a deal worth £57m in Maurizio Sarri’s first move since his appointment.
The Italian has impressed since the move and is already an important fixture in the side.
And Chelsea teammate Loftus-Cheek has revealed he’s the best player in training.
“Jorginho trains well all the time, he’s a very good player,” he told the Chelsea website.
The England ace also revealed he is already picking up the English lingo.
“I’m not sure about the longest but Jorginho already speaks it very well,” he said when asked who took the longest to learn English.
“He was good as soon as he arrived, but now he’s even picked up the slang as well.”
Chelsea have started the season impressively with four wins from four games and sit level with Liverpool and Watford at the top of the league.
The Blues are in action against Cardiff this weekend and, with Liverpool facing Tottenham and Watford against Manchester United, could finish the weekend outright top of the pile.
Loftus-Cheek though has been warned he needs to break into the team on a regular basis by England boss Gareth Southgate.
He started the friendly last night as England won 1-0, playing an hour before coming off for Jesse Lingard.
“One of the biggest concerns is playing time for English players – that is shown by a number of the squad who came with us in Russia not getting opportunities,” Southgate said.
“More of a concern is the young players who might be coming through to challenge that are not getting an opportunity to play.
“With the top-six teams we are on a graph which is a real concern with the decreasing number of English players.
“It’s not that the talent isn’t there – we have shown with the under-17 world champions, under-20 world champions and at the senior World Cup, there are good English players there.
“We have some very exciting young players that, if we’re not careful, we’ll lose without those opportunities.”
