Jorginho: It’ll be ‘sad’ if Sarri leaves Chelsea.

Jorginho is hoping Maurizio Sarri stays at Chelsea, amid reports suggesting he will step down as Blues head coach to take over at Juventus.

Sarri led the west London club to a third-place finish in the Premier League and Europa League success in the 2018-19 campaign. And they also reached the final of the EFL Cup, losing to Manchester City on penalties.

Jorginho, who followed Sarri to Stamford Bridge from Napoli last year, said it’ll be “sad” to see his boss become Massimiliano Allegri's successor at Juve.

“It would be sad because I think he did a good job," Jorginho told a news conference of rumours Sarri could leave.

“We finished third in the Premier League, we won the Europa League and we reached the EFL Cup final despite all the critics.

“It was a good first season in Chelsea. It would be sad for everyone.”

Italy international Jorginho, also warned the Napoli fan base will feel "betrayed" if the move happens.

“The Napoli fans still have him in their hearts; it's normal that they could get angry. They could treat it as a betrayal; they're like that. We'll see what happens,” he concluded.
