“It’ll be really important for us” – Jorginho names one thing that could give Chelsea big boost
In comparison to some of the other teams in this tournament, Chelsea are absolute giants financially, and they should be lifting the Club World Cup easily.
Things never work out as you expect however, and the Blues were lucky to beat Al Hilal in the semi finals, and will see a tougher test again when they face Palmeiras tomorrow.
Chelsea are likely to be without Thomas Tuchel their manager, who tested positive for Covid last week. He has now completed his mandatory quarantine, and just needs a negative test to be free and get on a flight to Abu Dhabi.
According to Jorginho, who spoke today in the press conference ahead of the final, having their coach back would make a big difference:
“Of course it gives you more [having him here]. There’s more energy in the changing room. It’ll be really important for us if he could be here. That’s what we hope but at the moment we just don’t know. We can hope,” the midfielder said in quotes picked up by Football.London.
Let’s hope we don’t end up looking back on his absence as an excuse for another disappointing Club World Cup final performance.
