As the two close friends square off in the Champions League on Wednesday night, Juventus captain Giorgio Chiellini believes Jorginho should win the Ballon d’Or.
Jorginho was crowned UEFA Men’s Player of the Year earlier this month after winning the Champions League with Chelsea and Euro 2020 with his country last season.
In a pre-match press conference, Chiellini spoke glowingly about Jorginho’s quality, despite the Blues continuing their European defense and the Italian pair meeting each other at the Juventus Stadium tonight.
‘I hope he’ll be able to win, he is a good friend of mine. It’s an award that would feel like it was mine,’ Chiellini said.
‘He was involved in a win and emotions that will always be in our hearts. I’ve always thought he was a good player but after the first few training sessions I realised how good he is, what a top player he is.
