But it appears their supporters are finally warming to the Brazilian-born midfield star.
One wrote: "Best moment of the night. Jorginho has been immense in our journey to the final. One last step remains."
A second tweeted: "This man has played his heart out this season, well deserved praise...That tackle on Benzema during the breakaway to wards the end."
A third added: "My respect for him has gone SO SO SO HIGH. A proper warrior. No wonder why Pep was so upset when he didn't get him."
The Blues are in a commanding position to finish in the top four in the league and have not one but two cup finals to look forward to this month.
