Chiellini hopes Jorginho will win the Ballon d’Or this year

Juventus and web site Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini has expressed hope that his compatriot Chelsea midfielder Jorginho will win the Ballon d’Or.

“I hope Jorginho wins. He is a good friend of mine. If he is given an award, I will take it as my own. Jorginho was part of the team that won the Euro and brought emotions that will always be in our hearts. I always considered him a good player, but after the first joint training I realized how strong he is. This is a top footballer. Jorginho is technically gifted, but the main thing is what is in his head. Many say that he could only show his maximum under the guidance of Sarri, but wherever he played, he was always a base player. I really hope that he will be awarded the Ballon d’Or, – quotes Goal as saying Chiellini.

In 2021, Jorginho became the winner of Euro 2020 and the Champions League.

The Ballon d’Or ceremony will take place in Paris on 5 December.
