Jorginho continues promising start to season in quest to become Chelsea's renaissance man

The Chelsea rookies are already threatening to dominate Frank Lampard’s first season in charge and yet there is also a fascinating sub-plot of a player trying to complete an unlikely story of redemption.
Unfortunately, what had started as a promising first Champions League appearance for Chelsea finished with fingers pointed at Jorginho for Valencia forward Rodrigo’s goal.
Jorginho looks made for Europe’s top club competition, but he switched off when it really mattered, allowing Rodrigo to run past him and divert Daniel Parejo’s free-kick into the net.
The goal represents a setback to what had been a promising start to the season by Jorginho, as he attempts to become Chelsea’s renaissance man.
It was striking that the Chelsea fans who booed him last season sang Jorginho’s name during the victory over Norwich City last month and there is now a genuine will from the Stamford Bridge stands for him to succeed.
The midfielder was cast as the teacher’s pet of Maurizio Sarri’s reign, a player only worthy of his place because of his relationship with the former head coach and a ‘Regista’ not suited to English football.
He failed to assist a single goal during his first season under Sarri, but the Italian broke that particular duck by setting up Tammy Abraham for his hat-trick goal against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the weekend.
