- The Chelsea legend believes there is no difference between Kante and the Italian

Ruud Gullit has named Chelsea midfielder Jorginho as Maurizio Sarri's worst signing of the season.

The Italy international joined the Stamford Bridge outfit for £50million from Napoli in the summer following his manager's move to the west London club.

However, former Blues player and coach, who manged the club from 1996 to 1998 has called the big money move a mistake.

The 1998 European Cup winner with the Netherlands believes it was an error with Chelsea already having N’Golo Kante in the squad.

“He finds it difficult to choose between them, so he plays both.

“He should pick one of them, and maybe look to Ross Barkley, who I like for his power, or, when he is fit again, Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

“Whoever it is, Chelsea need a midfielder who can add more to their attack, because that is what they are missing.”

Since Jorginho's arrival at Chelsea, Kante has been moved into a more advanced position in the midfield and Gullit claiming its a huge mistake.

"That's why, personally, I think Sarri's biggest mistake was to buy Jorginho when he already had N'Golo Kante," Gullit claimed.

“They are a little bit different as players but both of them are holding midfielders.”

Sarri's men made it through to the final of the Carabao Cup following a shoot-out win against Tottenham and will face holders Manchester City.

"I think expectations at Chelsea are different now, because some of the supporters have been spoilt by success," Gullit added.

"They want more, all of the time, but the competition is immense - which just makes things more difficult for Sarri."
