Jorginho was named the UEFA best Men’s player of last season at the award ceremony during the Champions League draw earlier on Thursday.
Although he was unable to attend the function, Jorginho’s reactions have been captured by chelseafc.com.
“I have no words to describe this moment,” Jorginho said on winning the award.
“It’s unreal for me because I have worked so hard to get here. It feels amazing and none of this would have happened without the help of everyone who contributed along the way.
“All of my teammates, for both Chelsea and the national team, my managers, kit men, physios, medical staff, and just everyone that works in the building.
“It happened because of everyone and not just me, so it means a lot. I just want to say thank you to all those people who have helped along the way, and even to those who didn’t believe in me because they motivated me to work even harder.
“It’s a great feeling, I’m really happy, and I just want to say thank you to everyone.”
The Italian’s humility showcases that his personality is a huge part of what has driven him to his success, something he thoroughly deserves.
Jorginho will be hoping to continue impressing and making a serious run at the Ballon d’Or after an already wildly successful 2021.
