Jorginho, a Chelsea midfielder, has stated that he will vote for Manchester City star to win the Ballon d’Or in 2021.
The Italian is one of the favorites to win the prize, having won the Champions League and Super Cup with Chelsea, as well as the European Championships with Italy, in a brilliant calendar year.
In an interview with ESPN Brazil, Jorginho joked that he doesn’t expect many votes and would even vote for himself to ensure he gets one.
“For everything he’s done and the magnificent football he’s shown in recent years, I believe I’d vote for Kevin De Bruyne.” For football fans, it’s fantastic to see him play because he knows the game and is a player with above-average intellect.”
De Bruyne is believed to have a chance to win, although Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski are the clear favorites for the trophy, with the latter being the popular option.
Despite being criticised for his lack of effect during his Chelsea stay, Jorginho has gained significant appreciation in recent months for his influential role with both club and country.
