Jorginho: England suits me, but…

Jorginho admits the Premier League ‘suits my game’ but suggests Manchester United do not interest him due to their lack of a pressing and passing ethos.

United are among a number of Premier League sides who have been linked with Jorginho, but while the Napoli midfielder reiterated his liking for English football, he made it clear he preferred the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool.

“I think the Premier League suits my game, but it also depends on who I have next to me because I need to be surrounded by players with certain characteristics,” he told the Brazilian Press in the mixed zone after Italy’s 1-1 draw with England.

“There are teams in England who play the football I like, keeping the ball on the ground, playing a quick game with one-twos, pressing their opponents high up the pitch…

“if one of these clubs were interested in me, I’d adapt to them well and they could adapt to my way of playing, which isn’t so common.

“It depends on how many opportunities you have. If you have only one option then you don’t have a choice.

“if you have more than one then you can choose the one that’s right for you, your style of play and characteristics.”
