Ballon d’Or 2021: Jorginho makes confession

Ballon d’Or 2021: Jorginho makes confession

Chelsea midfielder, Jorginho, has admitted he is starting to ‘give some thought’ to winning the Ballon d’Or this year.

Jorginho helped Chelsea to win the UEFA Champions League last season and followed that up with a stellar Euro 2020 campaign with Italy.

The Italy international also won the UEFA Super Cup with Chelsea and that has propelled him into contention for the 2021 Ballon d’ Or.

The 29-year-old was recently backed by Chelsea legend, Gianfranco Zola, to win the Ballon d’ Or this year.

However, Jorginho will have to battle Paris Saint-Germain forward, Lionel Messi for the 2021 Ballon d’ Or.

Speaking on the development, Jorginho told Amazon Prime Video Italia, “When there is so much talk about it [Ballon d’ Or 2021], naturally, you are going to give it some thought.

“Gianfranco [Zola] is a great guy, we had so many wonderful experiences together at Chelsea, we always played together in training and you could still see the quality he had.

“We always have a laugh and I call him Nano (dwarf) because he is so short! I love you, Gianfranco.”

He added, “The move to the Premier League helped me improve physically. Before coming here, I would try more to read the game for my interceptions, then I arrived in England and adapted.”
