Chelsea’s Jorginho tips Milan midfielder to succeed him

Chelsea midfielder and UEFA Men’s Player of the Year 2021 Jorginho has tipped Sandro Tonali to succeed him the future.

Jorginho was talking to the press ahead of Italy’s upcoming friendlies during the international break. He was asked a host of things and he was asked to talk about his future successor. The Chelsea star talked about Tonali.

He said: “Let me think – Tonali. Now everyone plays in a two in midfield, I realise it’s not easy. Today’s kids grow up playing practically only two in midfield, then it’s normal to struggle when you get older.”

Tonali recently scored a delightful free-kick from Milan against Cagliari, so perhaps Jorginho’s praise comes at the right time.
