Jorginho had an unforgettable 2021-season. He scored seven goals in the Premier League including the game-changing goal in the final against Manchester City. The 29-year-old had a great run in the Euro 2020 and was one of the vital players in Italy’s winning campaign.

Jorginho was up against his teammate Kante and Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne. The star midfielder won two major trophies within a two-month span and that puts him ahead of De Bruyne. UEFA said Jorginho had won 175 points in the voting by coaches and journalists, to De Bruyne’s 167 and Kante’s 160. Argentine Lionel Messi, a six times Ballon d’Or winner, was fourth with 148.

“I have no words to describe this moment. 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.” Jorginho said about winning the award.
