Jorginho feels ‘underappreciated’ at Chelsea as midfielder hits back at critics



The Italy international is aware that his value to the collective cause continues to be questioned, but he is happy with his contribution

Jorginho is aware that “a lot of criticism” has come his way across three seasons at Chelsea and admits to feeling “underappreciated” as his numbers are better than many give him credit for.

The Brazil-born Italy international is, as a holding midfielder, not one to steal the headlines with displays of match-winning brilliance, with his game all about ticking things over and allowing others to shine.

Those qualities can sail under the radar at times, with the 29-year-old happy with his contribution to the collective cause regardless of what others may think.

Quizzed by the Daily Mail on whether his time at Stamford Bridge has been something of a rollercoaster, Jorginho said: “Ups and downs? You need to look at the numbers and the numbers are not like that.

“I received a lot of criticism and I can accept that. Everybody has an opinion and I don’t always agree but I can respect it.

“It motivates me to work harder and do better and keep proving they are wrong. Sometimes I do feel unappreciated but I don’t get disappointed. This is a great moment for me — a great moment for the team — but we can’t get too comfortable. We must be humble and keep pushing.”

“He has definitely made a big impact,” Jorginho added on the influence of Tuchel since he was appointed as successor to Frank Lampard in January.

“Straight away, he understood what he had to work with and how to get the best from us. He understood what to say and what to expect from the players.”
