Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has suggested that star midfielder Jorginho has sacrificed himself for the team. The Italian international has struggled to impress in recent outings for the Blues but Tuchel has defended his trusted midfield general.

During Chelsea's pre-match press conference ahead of their midweek Premier League clash against rivals Arsenal, Tuchel was asked about the form of the 30-year-old. The German tactician claimed that Jorginho's sacrifice for the team has resulted in a dip in his form.

The German manager also opened up on how difficult it has been for the midfielder to live up to expectations after his European Championship triumph with Italy. The 48-year-old said, as quoted by Football.London :

"He sacrificed for the team and I think you see it now. There are so many demands and after a big success, like winning the Euros, he felt the pressure.

"This is normal and sometimes after big success it is difficult to keep on going and going."


Tuchel has admitted that he has overused the former Napoli midfielder and that has drained the 30-year-old.

"He put the responsibility on his shoulders and always does. That is why I love him. We see we overused him and I feel we see the consequences of that. He is not at his freshest moment at the minute."
