Jorginho has finally responded to the questions about him being one of this year’s Ballon d’Or canditates.
Chelsea star’s name has suddenly been involved in the Ballon d’Or conversation after his performances in the Champions League and the Euro 2020 over the past few months. It’s surely been the best period of his career.
Previously, the player avoided all the questions about his possible Ballon d’Or nomination. However, Goal reporter Nizaar Kinsella has just reported Jorginho’s latest words on this topic.
“We live for dreams and [the Ballon d’Or] hinges on what criteria they use. If it is down to skill, I am not the best player in the world. But if it is down to who won more trophies, there is no one who won more titles than me.”, said the Italian international.
He also added, “It depends on the criteria, best player or who won more titles? How do you compare to Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar? Honestly those are different characteristics, but it comes along with the criteria.”
