Jorginho has dismissed the notion that he is Sarri’s special boy.
He said: “I’m a normal player. Like all the other players. I don’t want to be special. It’s good, no, it’s perfect to be the same as everyone else. I don’t want to be a special one.”
The fans are entitled to have their opinion, to be supporters and think whatever they like. It also gives me strength to work more to change their views on me. Even if they think I am Sarri’s man, I want to show them why Sarri likes me, that I am a good player and they are wrong to have that attitude towards me. But I have never had any doubts. I believe in myself.”
“I know how hard I am working and how much effort I am putting in. So, while I accept [the critics’] views, I don’t share them. I respect their opinion, I listen, I stay calm and work hard, trying to do better. I knew it was going to be a hard challenge over here. I knew it was going to be very tough, so I am comfortable with that and I am learning from my mistakes.”
