The Italian midfielder Jorginho has had a decent season. First winning the UEFA Champions League with Chelsea and now winning the UEFA Euro Trophy with his country; it’s safe to say it’s been a very successful season for him.

Jorginho was a crucial part of Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea, although he was largely ignored by Frank Lampard in the beginning. And under Roberto Mancini in Italy he would always remain an integral member.

Now that he has managed to win the two coveted titles, many pundits and former players believe Jorginho deserves to win the Ballon d’Or. The Ballon d’Or is the highest individual achievement for a footballer awarded by the French football magazine France Football.

In general, the Ballon D’or is considered a reward for personal exploits. However, if we take the recent trends, it tends to be players who have won the most trophies, especially the Champions League.

“Now we are talking about a fantastic player like Messi who for the first time did extraordinary things with his national team – and this will not go unnoticed. Should they give it to Jorginho? It would be deserved,” said former Chelsea player Gianfranco Zola.

“He gives concrete balance and speed to his teams. I was lucky enough to have him at Chelsea and I know what he’s doing on the pitch.” he added.

It would be deserved as not only was his performance at a high level but the teams he played for were outstanding. This must be taken into account‘ Zola added.
