Chelsea midfielder

Jorginho

, who was about to leave the club in the summer of 2020, has now claimed he is happy at Stamford Bridge and is trying hard to improve himself.

“I’m very happy because the team is doing very well, working hard, trying to understand what the coach wants.”

Jorginho said.

“I think it’s the right way to move forward.

“Tuchel understood the characteristics of the players and the way he wants to play is good for our characteristics.

“So he understood that and he’s trying to give us the advice and the right way to work and then the results are coming."

Jorginho has had impressing performances in midfield, alongside the Croatian star,

Mateo Kovacic

.

“I have a very good relationship with him because we think the same way about football, we understand each other,”

Jorginho continued.

“We know what we want to do, what each other wants to do, so I find it quite easy playing with him because we think the same way.

“We know who needs to be in that position in that moment so we leave space for each other in the right moment. We cover each other’s backs, we understand when we need to be close to each other and when we don’t.

“That’s what I was saying when I said we understand each other and think the same way, we understand the right moment to close the space or find a one-two or just to give space for him to drive the ball, because he has the ability to do that.

“I know when he needs that space to drive forward or when he’s a bit in trouble and needs help.”
