Ferdinard Blast Jorginho For Causing Chelsea’s 2 – 0 Defeat To Arsenal

Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand has
blamed Chelsea midfielder, Jorginho following
the Blues’ 2-0 defeat to Arsenal in the Premier
League on Saturday.
Goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Laurent
Koscielny ensured victory for Unai Emery’s men
at Emirates.
Ferdinand said Jorginho “can’t run” , calling on
Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri to replace the
former Napoli star by N’Golo Kante in the
defensive holding position.
Chelsea will tackle Bournemouth in their next
Premier League fixture on Wednesday.
“Jorginho’s someone who sets
the tempo of a game. You get
the ball into him through the
middle third of the pitch, he’s
very good,” Ferdinand told BT
“‘[But] How many assists has
he got this season? Around
2,000 passes, no assists. “He’s
not a great defender. Once a
game gets like this against the
big teams, he gets overrun in
“He can’t run. So he doesn’t
give you anything defensively,
and he doesn’t give you
anything up the other end of
the pitch.
“Chelsea’s problems all stem
from not having a number
nine. There’s no focal point. I
think this manager needs to
play Kante in the holding
position. He’s the best in the
world there.
“Hazard can play the false nine
role but he doesn’t offer you as
much. Two of the best players
are playing out of position at
the moment.”
