After Frank Lampard swooped for the seasoned defender after leaving French giants Paris Saint-Germain upon his contract expiring in the summer, Jorginho took on an additional role in the Chelsea dressing room by helping Thiago Silva learn crucial football phrases in the English language.

The 36-year-old former Brazilian international does not yet speak English, but midfielder Jorginho, a Brazilian-born Italian, has done what he can to ensure that his new teammate settles as soon as possible.

‘I have taught him “man on”, “turn” or if he is on the other side, “switch play”,’ Jorginho said, according to The Sun. ‘Things that you need on the pitch. “Man on”, “drop” or “up”. ‘We try to help each other. That’s what you do on and off the pitch. He is happy here. He is a big personality, a big player with lots of experience. He is helping all of us as a group, the younger players, everyone.’
