Chelsea midfielder Jorginho: I can't explain how it feels being Champions League winner

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho admits their Champions League success has him hungry for more title glory.

Jorginho was impressive for Italy in their Euro 2020 opening night win against Turkey.

He said, “It was great [to win the Champions League].

"It's hard to find the words to describe that feeling. I have even more desire to win now, I'd like to feel the same with the national team.

“This group is similar to Chelsea. Everybody wants to win, the younger ones and the most experienced ones. Everyone wants to achieve something important."

He added: “I am a lad who tries to help everybody. There are many players with personality here and we need everybody's help: Chiellini, Bonucci, Insigne, Verratti, Immobile, Donnarumma. We need everybody, we can always do well.

“When I was a child, I used to watch Ronaldo, Ronaldinho and Kaka. When I was 13, I met a coach who played me as a deep-lying playmaker, so Pirlo and Xavi became my role models."
