Former Chelsea defender Frank Leboeuf believes Chelsea midfielder Jorginho is nowhere near good enough to stay at Stamford Bridge and wants the Italian international to make way for the next generation.

After joining from Napoli back in 2018, Jorginho, 31, has been a long-time servant of Chelsea and has four major trophies to show for his five years at Stamford Bridge.

“Jorginho has served the club very well but he’s nowhere near it anymore,” Leboeuf told Si & Dan Talk Chelsea.

I had my time at Chelsea and people made it clear that John Terry was coming and I had to make way for him, and that’s understandable. That’s life. There is a present and there is a past, and the future is not for us. You have to accept that.

“I do like the way Jorginho plays, but he’s too slow when he has the ball, and defensively he doesn’t participate enough for me.”

Jorginho has made 212 appearances for Chelsea since joining the club from Napoli in 2018.
