Italy coach Mancini: Chelsea midfielder Jorginho among best in last 3 years

Italy coach Roberto Mancini insists he's happy working with Chelsea midfielder Jorginho.

Jorginho battled to make an impression in defeat to Portugal.

But Mancini argued: "In England I saw him play, he joined a team that had already been struggling and only he changed it.

For us here, he played a few games, we changed several players. He's yet to be really tested with us.

"Jorginho is one of the best midfielders of the last three years."
