Brazil great Roberto Carlos hails 'fantastic' Chelsea midfielder Jorginho

Brazil great Roberto Carlos has paid tribute to Chelsea midfielder Jorginho over his Euro 2020 success.

Italy had two Brazil-born players in their squad, Jorginho and Emerson Palmieri, who have taken Italian citizenship.

“Any top team would miss Jorginho, including Brazil. He has technique, vision and this ice-cool calm," Roberto Carlos told La Repubblica.

"He always knows the best thing to do.

“Plus he's also fantastic at winning back the ball, his positioning is remarkable in that sense. Jorginho was decisive for Italy, and for Chelsea. After he helped them win the Europa League and then Champions League, the English fans ought to build a statue of him."
