Jorginho is not good enough to drive Chelsea to the pinnacle of the game according to the Daily Mail’s chief sports writer Martin Samuel.
Chelsea’s 2-0 loss to Arsenal resulted to manager Sarri questioning his team’s mentality.
However, Samuel believes Chelsea’s struggles is the result of Sarri building his team around Jorginho.
“The headline is ‘Sarriball is fantastic’ says bloke called Sarri,” he told the Sunday Supplement.
“It doesn’t necessarily mean it’s fantastic for everybody. It isn’t fantastic for Kante or [Eden] Hazard.
“The guy it all has to rotate around is Jorginho, who doesn’t look good enough for that, certainly not in the Premier League.
“It seems to be a lot quicker than Serie A was for him. Arsenal swarmed around him yesterday. Sarri was basically saying ‘Arsenal wanted it more than us’ but their midfield was superb.
“They swarmed around Jorginho and they swarmed around Chelsea’s midfield. You’ve got Jorginho who, going into the game, the statistic was 1997 passes, creating 15 chances and zero assists.
“You can say the zero assists could be to do with players missing chances, but he’s not playing a killer pass – and if this is your playmaker he’s got to play the killer pass.”
