Jorginho admits 'two crazy days' impacted Chelsea players ahead of Brighton draw

Jorginho admits the last 'two crazy days' affected Chelsea ahead of their clash with Brighton on Tuesday.

With fans protesting outside Stamford Bridge about the club's involvement in the European Super League, the Blues played poorly in a goalless draw with the Seagulls.

And Jorginho is confident Chelsea will make the right decision about their future in the proposed competition.

"We tried hard to not let the last few days affect us but it has been two crazy days," Jorginho told Sky Sports.

"We tried to do our best performance but Brighton did very well and we didn't create many chance, like we usually do, and we suffered.

"Tell me who likes football in the world and who isn't talking about it right now? It is a big situation so everyone is talking about it and that is normal. We tried hard and we tried to push but unfortunately we couldn't win.

"It was different on the bus tonight. It was a different situation where the fans had the right to do what they think is best. It is all new and it is all different and see what happens.

"The club see what the fans think. It is something about us, that is fact and we're sure that the club will make the right decision. Unfortunately it is something that we can't do much about, we just need to support and hope the club will do the right thing."

Reports claimed prior to kick-off that owner Roman Abramovich and the club's board had decided to withdrawn from the Super League after the negative reception from fans, however, there has not yet been official confirmation from the club.
