Chelsea midfieder Jorginho says manager Maurizio Sarri’s move to Stamford Bridge convinced him to reject Manchester City.
The Italy international had an agreement to join to the Premier League champions, but ultimately linked up with a different set of Blues after seeing Sarri head to west London.
Jorginho and Sarri spent three years together at Napoli and the Brazil-born star says the opportunity to continue to work under the coach was too good an opportunity to turn down.
“There are a lot of things behind a negotiation process,” Jorginho told ESPN, when asked about his decision to join Chelsea over City.
“I believe Sarri’s arrival played a big part on it.
“And there’s also the greatness of Chelsea, such a big club. So these factors helped me making my mind.”
