Jorginho reveals future ambitions

After a stunning 2021 that saw Jorginho lift the Champions League with Chelsea and the European Championships with Italy, the midfielder has set his sights on a new goal.

With the World Cup in Qatar just under a year away, the regista is aiming to win Italy their fifth title, something he admits would surpass previous success with both Chelsea and Italy.

“It would not be bad to win the World Cup,” he told Globoesporte in Brazil, via Calcio Mercato.

“The Champions League and the Euros can’t be underestimated, but the World Cup goes beyond anything else. We won’t be the favourite in Qatar, but we can’t even go unnoticed as we won the Euros.”

The Blues have a packed winter schedule coming up, including the rescheduled FIFA Club World Cup, and the German wants everyone to be at their sharpest for it.

“[Club] The World Cup is coming and other international breaks so we decided here for the staff to give one week off, completely, to give everybody the chance to recover mentally and recharge the batteries,” he told the club’s official website.

“December will be tough, January will be tough and it will continue like this. No more breaks and we want to push the team to the limit so that is why we use the time now, after the game [Burnley] to rest.”

Chelsea are one of many clubs reportedly scouting Monaco’s midfield star Aurelien Tchouameni but the midfielder has recently insisted that he is not letting the rumours bother him.

Talking to French publication L’Equipe, he said: “I remember I was in Paris, after the Nations League. I woke up and my phone had blown up.

“My father called me, we talked about everything and he told me that I was on the front page of Marca. I went on Twitter and saw for myself.

“I told him it was cool, but what does it actually matter? It doesn’t. The front page of Marca will not define me or allow me to perform well in matches. It’s not real life, but it is the media world, the football business. They talk about me today but tomorrow, they’ll be talking about another.”
