Agent: ‘Jorginho closer to Brazil’

Jorginho’s agent confirms the Napoli man is “closer to Brazil than Italy” as Giampiero Ventura “has never given him the opportunity”.

The midfielder was born in Brazil, but moved to Italy as a teenager and has been capped twice by the Azzurri.

However, both of those came in friendlies to he’s still available for both nations, and hasn’t been called-up by Italy since Ventura took over.

“It’s difficult,” Joao Santos said on Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

“Jorginho is closer to Brazil than Italy, because Ventura has never given him the opportunity, because of the formation.

“Conversely, the Brazil CT, Tite, is very interested in Jorginho. Now we’ll wait until March for the friendlies, but right now he’s more Brazil.”
