Chelsea midfielder, Jorginho, has identified teammate, Kai Havertz, as the player who can make the difference for the Blues.
Havertz scored the only goal of the match on Sunday as Chelsea defeated Newcastle United 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.
Havertz’s goal against Newcastle means the German international has now scored in three successive Premier League appearances for Chelsea.
Speaking to Chelsea’s official website, Jorginho, who provided the assist for Havertz’s late winner against Newcastle, said the 22-year-old is a key player for the Champions League holders.
“Kai is an amazing player and guy, who can make the difference for us,” Jorginho told Chelsea’s official website.
“We believe in him because you can see the quality he has and the potential that is there. He is a key player for this team and can make the difference like we saw.”
Government tells Chelsea fans to stop chanting Abramovich’s name
Roman Abramovich has been sanctioned by the UK government and disqualified from his position as a Chelsea director.
The Blues supporters have been keen to show their support and gratitude to the Russian billionaire, accused of enabling Vladimir Putin and the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
At Stamford Bridge on Saturday (v Newcastle), Chelsea fans displayed a banner with Abramovich’s face and an inscription that read, “The Roman Empire”. The background of the banner is similar to the colours of the Russian flag.
At several games, the Blues’ match-going fans have also chanted Abramovich’s name, including during a minute’s applause to the victims of the war in Ukraine before the Burnley game.
Now the UK government has asked Chelsea fans to stop singing Abramovich’s name.
“We recognise the strength of feeling around people’s clubs but that does not excuse behaviour which is completely inappropriate at this time,” PM Boris Johnson’s official spokesman said, as quoted by the Independent.
“I think people can show passion and support for their club without resorting to that sort of stuff.”
