Agent Joao Santos insists Jorginho is happy at Napoli and hopes to start the Coppa Italia final
Joao Santos, the agent of Napoli midfielder Jorginho, is pleased with how his client has settled at the club.
The 22 year-old was signed from Hellas Verona in January and has gone on to make 13 appearances in Serie A.
Santos believes Jorginho can still get better and hopes the youngster will be handed a start in Saturday’s Coppa Italia final, against Fiorentina.
“In Napoli he has a great opportunity,” he told Raffaele Auriemma, as reported by Football Italia. “Let’s hope that he can play in Saturday’s final and help his teammates win the cup.
“It could be the first of his career. He is not suffering emotionally though, he is very concentrated.
“He is happy here with everyone. Who he plays with in midfield does not matter, all he is thinking about is doing his best to make sure he is a starter.
“He has played with [Gökhan] Inler and together they are a good pair. You just need to see the great match they both had in Milan.
“I never talk to Jorginho about his private life but I know he is happy and has respect for Rafa Benítez.
“Hopefully on Saturday he can start, but I will not be judging his season with Napoli.
