Jorginho has joked that he would vote for himself for this year’s Ballon d’Or as that would ensure that he would get at least one nomination for the award.

The 29-year-old won the Champions League with Chelsea in late May, before playing a pivotal role in Italy’s triumph at Euro 2020 and was among the 30 players shortlisted for the illustrious award, to be presented on 29 of November.

The Ballon d’Or is often dominated by attacking players, with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo winning the last 11 of the 12 awards on offer, with Luka Modric the only man to break the duo’s hold on him three years ago.

Jorginho’s nomination for De Bruyne would have him bypass the likes of Robert Lewandowski, Messi and Mohamed Salah, who are considered favorites to win the award.

Only four midfielders, Luis Figo in 2000, Pavel Nedved in 2003, Kaká in 2007 and Luka Modric in 2018, have won the Ballon d’Or since the turn of the century.

The award has often been criticized for overlooking players with predominantly defensive duties in favor of scorers, which is voted on by journalists, international coaches and captains.

And Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel believes Jorginho fully deserves to win the gong by the end of next month.

However, the serious choice for Jorginho (right) would be for Kevin De Bruyne (left) to win the award.

Tuchel suggested that choosing a winner from a short list of footballers playing in different roles was far from an exact science and devalued the award.

‘He [Jorginho] He has a great vision of football, ”added the German.

‘For me, individual awards are not very important, it is impossible to make a real comparison between several players of different roles.

‘I would like one of my players to win it because he would know what the effect would be.

“So Jorginho is a great person and an excellent player, but in general he is not the most important thing.”
