"If I'm here at Chelsea it's because I coached Napoli". Despite initially getting overwhelmed by Pep Guardiola's suave artistes in the Community Shield, Jorginho quickly turned conductor in the Blues's orchestra and quickly underlined his importance for Sarri's system.

"I was out for dinner with [Giuseppe] Pompilio, the assistant of [sporting director Cristiano] Giuntoli, and I was talking to him about whether I should stay or not", Sarri told Il Mattino. I don't know why I am not at Napoli anymore, ask the club.

"The release clause in my contract with Napoli expired on May 31, but De Laurentiis appointed Ancelotti on the 21st".

When Maurizio Sarri took over as Chelsea manager, he brought along his trusted midfielder in order to help ease his preferred Sarri-ball unto the Blues and the results have been fantastic, to say the least.

Speaking in a news conference on Italy duty earlier this week, Jorginho said that he is enjoying life in the Premier League but admitted that he forged a lasting bond with Napoli in his four years at San Paolo and hopes to return to Serie A one day.

"It's totally different here though".

Israel's embassy had reopened only two years ago following a halting of its activity due to budgetary constraints in 2002. Benitez, the grandson of a Lebanese immigrant, said that he was not consulted about the move.

"But now I have Chelsea and I'm happy".

"I sign autographs for fans of the opposing team on the touchline, before and after the match". We were discussing my future, if I stayed or not.

"There are games with so much intensity and such physicality".

"I didn't win anything in Naples".

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill has reportedly threatened to quit the Premier League side when the January transfer window opens unless he gets regular playing time at Stamford Bridge. "English football is different to Italian and it's played in extraordinary structures".

After overseeing one of Napoli's most successful seasons in the modern era, Sarri admits that he was surprised that he couldn't continue his work into this campaign.
