Chelsea boss Sarri puts Ampadu on notice: Our new Jorginho?by Paul Vegas9 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has revealed he is considering Ethan Ampadu for a midfield role.Sarri made the revelation when discussing Jorginho’s performance for victory over Newcastle.”After 20 minutes he [Jorginho] lost a lot of balls and it is unusual,” analysed Sarri, “so I think he was in trouble. Maybe he was tired, I don’t know, but if Fabregas was on the bench I think in the second half Fabregas would have been on the pitch instead of Jorginho.”Sarri made it clear there are not many areas where the squad needs strengthening and he acknowledges Ampadu has potential to play the Jorginho way.”In the future maybe but we have to work,” he points out. “The player who plays in that position usually touches about 120 to 130 balls [a match] and so I think we need a specialist there.”The bench is not really very short. It is left short for only one position at the moment because Hudson-Odoi is improving, Hudson-Odoi in one or two months will be at the same level as the other players. I hope the same for Ampadu. Of course playing as a central midfielder in our team is not easy, we need to try and try and try in training.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
