February 1 News Previously, Arsenal officially announced that the club signed the 31-year-old Chelsea midfielder Jorginho, and the two parties signed a contract for one and a half years.
Today, Chelsea officially wrote an article to say goodbye to Jorginho:
The Italy international leaves Stamford Bridge after a four-and-a-half-year spell during which he helped us win the Champions League, Europa League, Club World Cup and Super Cup.
Jorginho was our vice-captain most of the time.
Many of Jorginho’s best performances have come in European competition, where he played in the Europa League final in our 4-1 win over Arsenal in his first season with the Blues;
On the way to the Champions League, he played a key role.
He played all but one of the knockout games, during which we conceded just two goals and won the Champions League with Manchester City in the final.
From the moment Napoli arrived in west London, Jorginho was our leader on and off the pitch.
Before the penalty spot, his technique of jumping penalties showed his composure.
Perhaps his most iconic turnaround came in last season’s home win against Leeds, when he scored his second goal of the game and sent Stamford Bridge into a frenzy.
Of Jorginho’s 29 Chelsea goals, 27 have been from penalties, with the other two coming in away games to Fulham and Arsenal.
During his time with the Blues, Jorginho established himself in the Italian national team.
At Euro 2020, he started all games and helped the team beat England in the final.
That achievement, combined with his Champions League triumph a few months earlier, earned him the UEFA Male Player of the Year award and came third in the Ballon d’Or voting.
Off the pitch, Jorginho is a fun and friendly man who won four championship medals in 213 appearances for Chelsea.
Nothing is more precious than his performance in the 2021 Champions League.
Best of luck for your future, Jorginho!
