“There are a lot of things behind a negotiation process. 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 make up my mind.
“Sarri and I have a pretty good relationship. He’s always bantering, joking with me.
“He didn’t call me, because he’s not the type to be phoning players, but of course, through agents, I knew what his wish was and what kind of work would be put in here,’‘ Jorginho told ESPN.
Jorginho is expected to be in Chelsea’s starting lineups in their match against rivals Liverpool at Stanford Bridge on Saturday, September 29.
Meanwhile, in an earlier report, NIGERIA NEWS had reported that Chelsea legend Lampard welcomed new baby with his wife.
