Romelu Lukaku has lavished praise on new Chelsea teammate Jorginho, branding the Italy international “really good at football”.

Jorginho initially found it difficult to impress at Stamford Bridge following his arrival from Napoli in 2018, but the 29-year-old has been a key player for the Blues since Thomas Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard as head coach.

The midfielder was also an important figure for Italy at the European Championship, and Lukaku has reserved special praise for the former Hellas Verona youngster.

“I see someone like Jorginho every day now. That guy is really good at football,” Lukaku told VTM Nieuws.

Chelsea have made a strong start to the 2021-22 Premier League campaign, picking up seven points from their three matches against Crystal Palace, Arsenal and Liverpool.

The London club will attempt to record their third league victory of the season when they return to action at home to Aston Villa after the international break.
