Jorginho agent: No issue with Benitez

Jorghino’s agent has insisted that the Napoli playmaker is not annoyed with Rafa Benitez for leaving him out of the Europa League squad.

The Spanish tactician has decided not to register the youngster for European games this season, after arriving in January from Verona.

But the attacker’s representative has claimed that there is no bad blood between player and Coach.

“The boy’s not demoralised by the news,” Joao Santos told TuttoMercatoWeb.

“We heard the news this afternoon, but the lad is only focused on the match with Roma on Wednesday.

“Benitez is a top Coach, and if he’s made this decision it is because he thinks he has enough options in midfield.

“Jorginho arrived at Napoli to do his best, and if that’s in the League and the Coppa Italia, then so be it.”
