Jorginho won the Champions League with Chelsea and played a crucial role in Italy’s Euro 2020 triumph.
Chelsea gaffer, Thomas Tuchel has backed Chelsea and Italy’s midfielderJorginho to win the Ballon d’Or after a wonderful year for club and country.
Tuchel has said that Jorginho ‘deserves’ the award, though downplayed how much individual honours mean in football.
“Jorginho deserves to win the Ballon d’Or,” “He’s a very intelligent player and it’s a pleasure to be his coach.
“He has a great vision of football. For me, individual prizes don’t have great significance, it’s impossible to make a real comparison between several players of different roles.
“I would like one of my players to win it because I would know what the effect would be. Then Jorginho is a great person and an excellent player, but in general it’s not the most important thing.” Tuchel said
Thomas Tuchel also touched signing Romelu Lukaku, from Inter for a club-record fee.
“I’m sorry for the Inter fans, but like everyone, we try to improve our formation,” he added. “We were looking for a very physical striker, a point of reference, a player with a personality who could lift the pressure off the shoulders of the younger players and give us the chance to play faster football.
“Returning to England, where he played as a young man, was important for him. I knew he was an extraordinary person.” Tuchel added
