Chelsea midfielder Jorginho heaps praise on Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri, who spent a year at Stamford Bridge before moving to Turin.

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has praised Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri, claiming that the Italian is "extraordinary on a tactical level".

During Sarri's time at Napoli and Stamford Bridge, Jorginho was a first-team regular in the centre of midfield, an indication that Sarri is an admirer of the Italy international.

Although Juventus have not always produced convincing performances under Sarri, Jorginho has paid credit to the 61-year-old's qualities on the training ground.

Speaking to Gli Autogo during an Instagram Live chat, Jorginho said: "Sarri is a magnificent coach, he's extraordinary on a tactical level. I struggled a little at the beginning, but now that I can speak English more fluently and communicate, it's much easier.

Despite being linked with a return to Serie A at some stage of his career, the 28-year-old still has over three years left on his contract.
