Jorginho also completed the European treble by winning the Uefa Super Cup with Chelsea in August becoming the first player to win play and win in all three finals.

Jorginho granted an interview to Italian media outlet Calciomercato where he gave some insights into his career.

Speaking to the outlet, Jorginho spoke on the Balon d’or as he answered the question on whether or not he deserves to win the award the best men’s player in a calendar year.

Jorginho: “It’s not up to me to say if I should win the Ballon d’Or, but it would be an incentive for other players, to show that not only goals are taken into account.”

Speaking in the same line, Jorginho also revealed that he would forge ahead and focus on his already established wins if the Balon d’or is beyond reach for him.

Jorginho: “It’s great if it happens, but if it doesn’t, I won’t complain. I keep my feet on the ground and I focus on something else, I’ve already won the best player of the year by UEFA.”

The Balon d’or organizers, France Football will announce the winner of the award later this month.
