Jorginho reveals Maurizio Sarris strange superstitions ... and Chelsea boss can not explain Sarriball

Maurizio Sarri has already earned a reputation as one of the more superstitious managers in the Premier League, and Jorginho has given this fire an extra boost.

The Italian midfielder followed Sarri from Napoli to Chelsea in the summer and was one of the key figures in his undefeated start to the league campaign.

When Sarri was responsible for Sansovino in Serie D, he crashed before a game in one of his player cars, which they could then win. He repeated the feat next week when a collision occurred. You have won again.

And Jorginho has revealed that the Italian will never touch the match ball.

It's just another of his weird superstitions – but the midfielder clearly appreciates his boss.

"It's really easy to understand, you know," Jorginho told Chelsea TV.

"The way he looks – that's how he is. He has no secrets. He is a simple guy. He has his … beliefs, his superstitions. Everyone does it.

"For example, he will never touch the match ball, and even if we lose, the ball will go off and we'll have to get the ball back in the game as soon as possible, and he will not approach him, no way – he will not touch it.

"Then there are other things as well, but that's normal, no?"

Jorginho looked after a summer change to Manchester City, but landed in Chelsea, which was mainly due to Sarris arrival in West London.

The manager has no illusions about how important his Italian colleague is for his system, which has so far been very successful.

"Jorginho was important to me because he's been with me for four years," Sarri said.

"So he is my point of reference for my approach to the team and vice versa, he is a player who fits in perfectly with my playing style."

This style of play immediately catches the eye and already has a nickname on these shores: Sarriball.

Assistant coach Gianfranco Zola says, "It's like an orchestra," but Sarri wants his players to always have fun. That's why he gave up his job in the banking business, to return to the game again.

"I think of all of us as children, we have [fun] the first time we go to a soccer field, "

"I have to enjoy this work, because this work is my passion. I have to have fun, but I also think, what is football without fun? "

However, he is not so sure about the "Sarriball" terminology that follows him: "I think the term was found on social media," he continued. "Some people have written about our style of play and what I said in interviews.

"I really do not know how to explain it, they probably did better than me." This idea is behind my approach. Essentially, my philosophy is to speak directly and clearly

And he says, "I started this job out of passion and my love is football, not TV cameras."

Sarri's Chelsea will face Crystal Palace tomorrow in front of the TV cameras to create eleven league games and keep pace with Manchester City and Liverpool
