Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has labelled Chelsea midfielder Jorginho as a class act.
The Italy international followed new Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri to Stamford Bridge from Napoli in a £57 million earlier this summer, and the 27-year-old has been an integral part of the Blues climb to joint top of the Premier League table.
Midfield metronome Jorginho has played more passes than any others player in the English top-flight so far this season, with Carragher lavishing praise on the Chelsea star.
“He looks a class act,” Carragher told Sky Sports.
“Now you know why Man City and Chelsea I think were fighting over him.
“These are the things we are looking at now in terms of passes. Now, I think that’s also a big thing.
“When a manager comes in, you can already tell his style if he goes with that type of player in his holding-midfield role.
“A passer, rather than (N’Golo) Kante, who’s more someone who can break things up. He’s moved Kante’s position to bring him in there.
“I think that shows how he wants to go forward with the team and the quality of this lad.”
