'Chelsea will improve under Sarri'

Jorginho’s agent believes Chelsea ‘will be even better next season’ under Maurizio Sarri and ‘hopes’ for a Europa League Final against Napoli.

The futures of Sarri and Jorginho are thought to be intertwined, amidst mounting speculation Chelsea will eventually sack the former Napoli boss.

“I certainly think Chelsea will be even better next season,” Joao Santos told Radio Kiss Kiss.

“Sarri needs time, football is like that. Playing on Thursday in the Europa League and then Sunday in the Premier League is very difficult and tiring.”

The Blues were paired with Slavia Prague in the Europa League quarter-finals – a draw many consider favourable…

“It was a positive draw for Chelsea, but from the semi-finals you can’t run away from it any longer,” added Santos.

“We hope for the best and I hope that in Baku, the Final is Chelsea-Napoli. I foresee it and I’ve already booked a hotel in Azerbaijan.

“Jorginho always hears from his former Napoli teammates. They’ve remained very close friends.

“He’s joked with them about a possible Europa League Final in Baku. It would be unique.

“He spent four years in Naples and it was great. He’d like to face them in the Europa League Final. It’d make him happy.

“Now he’s with the national team, where he hopefully does well.”
