Jorginho Kante

Jorginho may well not look like the most mobile of footballers, but he’s covered more ground this season than any of his teammates!

The Italian has been heavily scrutinised in recent weeks for his lack of contribution in the attacking third. His pass numbers are incredibly impressive, but he doesn’t have a single assist to show for them. People’s criticisms are often birthed from their lack of understanding of the role he plays in Maurizio Sarri’s system.

While Chelsea are in possession, Jorginho is there to distribute the ball and dictate the play, a job which he executes successfully on a weekly basis. However, this data which has been revealed by Squawka shows that he’s no slouch when the opposition have the ball either. Have a look at this!

Jorginho has covered more ground than any other Chelsea player this season – even more than renown road-runner N’Golo Kante. The data is there which supports Jorginho’s contributions to the Chelsea team, yet there are plenty out there who still question what it is that he does. Wake up, Blues, we have one hell of a player holding our midfield.
