Agent: Jorginho starts in June

The agent of Napoli’s Jorginho has spoken of the great opportunity his client has with the Partenopei.

The 22-year-old arrived at San Paolo in January but Joao Santos believes fans will only start seeing what he is capable of next season.

“In Napoli he has a great opportunity,” Santos told Raffaele Auriemma. “Let’s hope that he can play in Saturday’s final and help his teammates win the cup.

“It could be the first of his career. He is not suffering emotionally though, he is very concentrated.

“He is happy here with everyone. Who he plays with in midfield does not matter, all he is thinking about is doing his best to make sure he is a starter.

“He has played with Inler and together they are a good pair. You just need to see the great match they both had in Milan.

“I never talk to Jorginho about his private life but I know he is happy and has respect for Rafa Benitez.

“Hopefully on Saturday he can start, but I will not be judging his season with Napoli.

“The real beginning of Jorginho’s time at Napoli will be in June. These four months have been good for his acclimatisation.”
