A two-time European champion with Chelsea and the Italian team, Jorginhofigure is de facto among the favorites to win the Golden Ball. An individual award for which the transalpine midfielder dreams, but especially his two coaches, Roberto Mancini and Thomas Tuchel.
Jorginho is one of the favorites for the Golden Ball.
Sometimes there would be (almost) no discussion. A two-time European champion with Chelsea and the Italian team, Jorginho (29) would probably have won the Golden Ball without blinking an eyelid with the Champions League and the euro in his bag.
But the undivided dominance of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo over a decade, which has deprived many players of these awards, has left its mark, preventing some men from the shadow of the supreme coronation of the individual.
Mancini and Tuchel behind Jorginho
Aware that his draw was part of the debate, but that he had no certainty that he would end up on the podium, Roberto Mancini logically came out of the woods into a campaign in his favor. Jorginho won the Champions League, Super Cup, Euro. He largely deserves the Golden Ball. The opposite would seem strange to me , coldly analyzed the coach of Azzurra, who does not see any player so well armed.
The observation was shared by his colleague from Chelsea, Thomas Tuchel. Jorginho deserves to win the Golden Ball. He is a very intelligent player and it is a pleasure to be his coach. He has a great vision of football. (…) Jorginho is a good person and a great player, but in general that is not the most important thing , explained the German manager, who regrets the excessive place of offensive statistics in the final decision.
Jorginho in rve
For his part, the former Napoli player did not hide his ambition to shake up the hierarchy. It would be something amazing to win this Golden Ball, it’s hard to find words to explain how I feel. It’s something that seemed so far away when I started playing football, and to see how close it is today, it’s already very nice , assured the Blues at a press conference. See you on November 29th.
