Jorginho believes Chelsea “deserved” the Europa League and defended Coach Maurizio Sarri. “Aside from all the criticism, I think we had a great season.”
The Stamford Bridge side pushed past Arsenal 4-1 in Baku to lift the trophy, having already qualified for the Champions League.
“It’s wonderful to win such an important trophy after a long, tough, difficult season, but I think we deserved it,” Jorginho told Sky Sport Italia.
“Aside from all the criticism, I think we had a great season. We finished third in the Premier League, reached the Final of the Carabao Cup even if we didn’t win it in the end and won this trophy.
“Criticism is part of the game, but I want to thank everyone who made this long journey to come here and cheer us on. I salute my wife and kids, who unfortunately couldn’t come because of the absolute chaos it took to get here.”
