Jorginho has revealed how he is helping Thiago Silva settle in to Chelsea after his summer move from PSG.
After months of speculation and rumours, Frank Lampard finally managed to sign the leader that he was looking for when the club finally decided to hand Thiago a contract that would see him make the move to England.
is seen as a key figure in the back line even though his knowledge of English is minimal, but Brazil-born Italian Jorginho acts as unofficial translator in the dressing room — and it is helping the team iron out defensive woes.
Midfielder Jorginho, 28, said on the SUN: “When he has some questions or some doubts he asks me and I try to help him if I can, because my English is not that great.
“I have taught him ‘man on’, ‘turn’ or if he is on the other side ‘switch play’. Things that you need on the pitch. ‘Man on’, ‘drop’ or ‘up’.
“We try to help each other. That’s what you do on and off the pitch.
“He is happy here. He is a big personality, a big player with lots of experience.
“He is helping all of us as a group, the younger players, everyone.
“He finds a way to communicate, whether it is with his hands or he speaks to me and I give the information to the other guys. We find a way.”
That greats from Jorginho, as we need Silva to lead that back-line and bark orders and he cant do that if he does not speak the language
