The England and Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips has raved about Chelsea star Jorginho in The Guardian.

Phillips has said that Chelsea midfielder Jorginho is an amazing player.

The Leeds star has also spoken highly of Paris Saint-Germain star Marco Verratti.

The 25-year-old midfielder made the comments ahead of the Euro 2020 final between England and Italy at Wembley Stadium in London on Sunday.

Phillips is likely to start for the Three Lions alongside Declan Rice in the middle of the park.

Chelsea’s Jorginho and Verratti of PSG will be the two key players in midfield for Italy.

Phillips told The Guardian:

“I have played against Jorginho. An amazing player, especially for Chelsea.

A player who is very good on the ball, using his body to get away from people. There are going to be a lot of different challenges that Italy are going to cause us.

“Verratti is an amazing player as well. I have always admired Verratti. With their two midfielders it is as difficult as it gets. We know it is going to be a very tough game. To come up against those two midfielders is going to be hardest test we’ve had.”

However, Jorginho and Verratti are better players than Phillips and more accomplished as well.

After all, the England international has played just one season in the Premier League.

However, Phillips’s performances for England at Euro 2020 cannot be understated at all.

The Leeds star has held his own in the middle of the park, formed a formidable partnership with West Ham United ace Rice, and has also gone forward when he has had the chance to.

Phillips and Rice can get the better of Jorginho and Verratti in the middle of the park on Sunday.
