Jorginho admits a legend behind Chelsea No5 choice

Jorginho admits a legend is behind his decision to take the No5 shirt at Chelsea.

The Brazilian-born Italy international joined Chelsea last week from Napoli.

He told chelseafc.com: "I think it is a strong number, and in Brazilian football it is a number that is well-respected and has an important place in the history of football, but above all it is just a number I like.

"I think it is a beautiful number. And also because great players in the past like Falcao from Brazil wore it."
