After the arrival of new players, we thought the moment had come to leave. A quality player like Jorginho cannot sit on the bench,” Santos told gianlucadimarzio.com.“There were five sides interested in Jorginho: four Italian and one English. We were very close to leaving Napoli, then director of sport Cristiano Giuntoli arrived.“He told us that the club really believed in him and considered him untouchable.
