Jorginho’s excellent performances for Italy at Euro 2020 is earning him some worldwide recognition.
Days after Italian playmaker Lorenzo Insigne labeled Jorginho ‘a professor’ and fit for the Ballon d’Or award, fans on Twitter are arguing the Chelsea midfielder should win the award based on his performance in the Champions League and Euros this year.
“Luka Modric got the Ballon d’Or for his crucial role in a UCL win and a World Cup final loss. Jorginho was fundamental to our UCL win this season, so if he brings home the Euros with Italy,” Pulisicfc22 wrote on Twitter.
Another Twitter user backed him up and suggested that if the Italian should win the Euros, he should be a candidate for the Ballon d’Or.
ConnCFC: “Jorginho for Ballon d’Or if Italy win the Euros should be a popular opinion.”
Meanwhile, N’Golo Kante has been the popular name most of the top football personalities have tipped for the biggest individual prize this year. But his Chelsea teammate, Jorginho would have a strong claim to the award should he help Italy win the Euro 2020 championship.
