Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has lavished praise on midfielder Jorginho's leadership qualities.
The 27-year-old struggled to show his best form for the Blues last season after arriving from Napoli.
The Italy international has been key for Lampard in the early stages of the 2019-20 campaign, however, and scored in Saturday's 2-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League.
The Chelsea manager has branded Jorginho "one of the leaders" at the club and has urged the younger players to look up to the experienced midfielder, who has over 350 professional appearances to his name.
"He's a leader in his personality. Whatever happened last year, I wasn't here. For whatever reason, people will make judgements, but all I can judge is what I see in front of me and from pre-season he has been one of the leaders, clearly, in the dressing room and on the pitch," Sky Sports News quotes Lampard as saying.
"He wants to win, and I know that should be the basics and it is the basics for everyone, but to show it in everything you do is important. He does that, so I'm pleased with Jorgie and the young players need to look up to that attitude he has daily."
Chelsea will be looking to secure their first Champions League points of the season when they travel to Lille on Wednesday night.body check tags ::
