Jorginho had Chelsea supporters on social media in stitches after a behind-the-scenes video emerged of the team’s photo shoot.
As the camera pans across the group, a cackle of witch-like proportions can be heard from somewhere in the pack.
The culprit is quickly discovered.
A man with magical midfield powers, Jorginho, is the man behind the Chelsea chortle.
Watch it here:
Blues fans had a giggle themselves at the Italian’s best Joker impression.
Here’s how they reacted on Twitter:

Although he may have sounded like Joaquin Phoenix’s character, there has been no clowning around from Jorginho in the past few months.
His performances post-Thomas Tuchel’s appointment have been worthy of an Oscar – and not just the former Chelsea playmaker of that name.
In fact, the 29-year-old was a winner at awards night, claiming the UEFA Men’s Player Of The Year prize last month.
He can place that trophy next to the Champions League, European Championship and Super Cup medals.
That’s some silverware haul, and all won from May onwards.
The Ballon d’Or could be next to nestle among its shiny companions if Jorginho gets the vote from his peers.
Is that a sentence any Chelsea supporter imagined they’d be reading this time last season?
Probably not, but it shows the shift in attitude surrounding Stamford Bridge that one of their own is even part of the conversation.
That’s what Tuchel has installed in the side – a winning mentality on and off the pitch. Players who had never lifted a title now have a taste for it.
Already conquerors of Europe, dominating the English scene is next on the agenda.
