Chelsea midfielder Jorginho says Chelsea fans were wrong to criticise him last season.

Jorginho was brought to Chelsea by Maurizio Sarri at the start of last season and was picked out by some fans who wanted Sarri to leave the club.

Jorginho reckons that his attachment to Sarri made him easy target for the fans.

“Last year, fans were picking on me a lot because I’d arrived with another manager and, in my opinion, I ended up hearing some things that were honestly unfair,” Jorginho told FourFourTwo magazine.

“But I’ve never challenged the views of the fans and other people who criticised me. Quite the opposite, actually – it gave me strength because inside I knew they were wrong.

“Deep in my mind, it was like this: ‘I’m going to prove they’re wrong and work quietly like I’ve always done, because it’s never been easy for me.’”

“I’ve gone through moments like this at every club I’ve played for – this low moment when doubt can come and make you wonder, ‘Should I just leave this place? Maybe there isn’t room for me here’.

“But I embrace this kind of challenge and I’ve never backed down. It gives me more strength to work even harder, to prove to everyone that I can make it.”

The Italy International has gone on to win the heart of many fans and became the club's vice-captain under Frank Lampard.
