Jorginho: Napoli happy to sell me to Chelsea

Jorginho insists his move to Chelsea was done with the support of Napoli.

While there was tension between the two clubs over Napoli's compensation demands for coach Maurizio Sarri, the transfer of Jorginho ran relatively smoothly.

Jorginho remarked from Italy's training centre yesterday: "There's a set of things: there is not only the will of the player but also that of the club, we have agreed for the good of both."

Asked about the differences between Sarri and new Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti, Jorginho offered: "Different management approach, this is the difference, and we saw it: the new coach made the changes before the break for the national teams, unlike Sarri. This is what I know."
