Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso has disclosed that new signing Jorginho is using his experience under Sarri to help the players adapt to the manager’s style at Stamford Bridge.

Jorginho played for Sarri at Napoli for three seasons and established himself as a key man in Sarri’s system at the Partenopei. He joined Chelsea earlier this month to reunite with the Italian tactician.

“He is used to playing this way, and he is going to be a great help for everybody. He is giving us tips to get used to this way of playing,” Alonso told the club’s website.

“We are working on a new formation, a new style that he is asking of us. He wants us to press high, he wants the team to be together, to have possession of the ball. “

Chelsea will face a big test against Manchester City in the Community Shield on August 5 before making the trip to Huddersfield Town for their Premier League opener six days later.
