Jorginho has admitted Chelsea’s players were guilty of sacking Thomas Tuchel as they prepare for their new era under Graham Potter.

The German coach was sacked in the wake of Chelsea’s surprise Champions League defeat to Dinamo Zagreb last Tuesday, with Potter quickly appointed as his replacement.

And the Italian midfielder, the deputy captain of Stamford Bridge, said the squad should be at least partly responsible for Tuchel’s departure after a poor start to the season.

‘Of course we are a team. So it’s not one person who is responsible for what happened,” he said Wednesday night at a press conference ahead of Chelsea’s home game against Red Bull Salzburg.

“We are a team and a group on the field. It is of course our responsibility what happened.’

Asked about what went wrong for the former manager, Jorginho added: “We tried to do what we could and where we could do better.

“Unfortunately it worked and now the challenge is to rebuild trust.

‘It was a surprise for us. There’s always talk about what happened, but now competitions are coming up and life moves fast, so we don’t have much time to think here.

“We talk and then we have to focus on what we’re doing.”

Potter, who left Brighton to take on the role at Chelsea on a five-year deal, saw his first game as leader postponed when Saturday’s visit to Fulham was postponed following the Queen’s death.

The match against Salzburg will go ahead as planned as the Blues try to kick off their Champions League campaign.

But Sunday’s game against Liverpool at Stamford Bridge has also been postponed due to limited police resources in London ahead of the Queen’s funeral on Monday.

Asked about his first impressions of Potter on the training ground, Jorginho added: “He is a humble coach, but with a good way of working.

“I think he has this challenge and I think he’s going to do very well because he has good ideas and a group of players who are ready to do the best we can and listen to what he wants.

“I think it’s a good combination for good results.”
