Jorginho, who was born in Brazil, warned Chelsea players that Palmeiras would ‘play for everything’ when both teams clash this weekend.
The Italian international said Palmeiras would come hard for the Premier League giants.
Chelsea will tackle the Brazilian side in the FIFA Club World Cup final tie on Saturday at the Mohammed Bin Zayed Stadium.
The Blues head to the game after beating Al-Hilal 1-0 in the semi-final on Wednesday.
Palmeiras, meanwhile, won 2-0 against Al Ahly in the other semi-final encounter.
“Palmeiras are going to play for everything,” Jorginho said at his pre-match press conference ahead of the clash.
“This is very important for a team in Brazil. I think probably [they want to prove they are better than European teams].
“It is the opportunity for them to play against a team from Europe. For them, that is a big thing. They are going to come for us. We need to be prepared for that.
“It is the same for us, but definitely we are going to give everything in this final and we need to be prepared.
“It is always good to be in a final. It is another trophy and it is important for us. We have never won this cup. It’s important and we will give everything to bring the trophy home.”
