Monaco veteran Cesc: My one criticism of Chelsea midfielder Jorginho

AS Monaco midfielder Cesc Fabregas admits he's a fan of Chelsea Champions League winner Jorginho.

Speaking on the BBC, Fabregas praised the Italian's contribution for Chelsea this season before his classic display in the Euro 2020 opener against Turkey.

"One of the biggest reasons I left Chelsea was because of him," Fabregas said jokingly. "He is a very smart player and a good passer of the ball.

"The only thing I can say about him is sometimes he releases the ball too quickly when he can play forward. He makes the team tick."

Jorginho has been instrumental for Thomas Tuchel this season, helping him to win his first piece of silverware as the Blues boss. Fabregas also admitted that he is looking forward to watching the midfielder in his national team colours.

"He (Jorignho) is a really good player and tactically, he knows what to do because of the coach's methodology, it helps him a lot."
