"This is the right time to bring this trophy home" - Jorginho on Chelsea's FIFA Club World Cup chances


Chelsea will lock horns with Saudi Arabian outfit Al-Hilal in the semifinals of the FIFA Club World Cup on Wednesday. The Blues will be hoping to claim their first silverware of 2022 and Jorginho has urged his colleagues to give their all to bring the trophy home.

It is worth noting that Chelsea are yet to add the FIFA Club World Cup trophy to their cabinet. Prior to this edition, the Blues participated in the tournament in 2012, losing in the final to Brazilian side Corinthians.

"It means a lot to me personally and I’m sure it means a lot to the club. Because we’ve never won this trophy and this is the right time to bring this trophy home," the Italian said in an interview with FIFA .

Speaking of Al-Hilal, Jorginho stressed Chelsea can't afford to underestimate the Saudi Arabian side in the Club World Cup semifinals. The midfielder has urged his colleagues to be well prepared for the vital encounter.

"We need to stay humble because if you underestimate your opponents, you can be in trouble. You need to be prepared, train well, sleep well, eat well, do everything as professionally as you can to arrive in the game and be able to win.

"It’s what we want to do, it’s what we like to do. We don’t like losing games and we want to bring this trophy home," the Italian said.

If Chelsea manage to edge out Al-Hilal , they will face Palmeiras in the final of the tournament on Saturday. The Brazilian outfit sealed a spot in the decider after beating Al Ahly 2-0 yesterday.
