Brazil boss Tite reveals he has spoken to Jorginho about the Napoli midfielder playing for the Selecao and “watched him for a long time.”
Jorginho has yet to play a competitive match for Italy, with both of his caps coming in friendlies under Antonio Conte, leaving the 25-year-old still open to the possibility of turning out for the country of his birth.
“I talked to Jorginho personally after I’d watched him for a long time,” the Coach said at a Press conference.
“I explained the situation to him to the last detail. I told him that he’d have to make a decision on which national team to choose. It’s a very important decision for him.
“We’ll see what happens in the future. The lad is aware of what we think about him and his possible role in our team.”
