Jorginho, a midfielder for Chelsea and Italy, has admitted that he might still win the Ballon d’Or, depending on the criteria applied later this year.
After Italy’s remarkable Euro 2020 success, the midfielder has emerged as an unexpected candidate for the prize.
Jorginho’s contributions to Chelsea and Italy’s respective Champions League and Euro 2020 victories were critical.
Jorginho on his Ballon d’Or contention: “We live for dreams and [the Ballon d’Or] hinges on what criteria they use. If it is down to skill, I am not the best player in the world. But if it is down to who won more trophies, there is no one who won more titles than me.” #CFC https://t.co/U6B3wpgamC

Jorginho, on the other hand, is upbeat, claiming that despite not being the best player in the world, no one won more trophies last season than him.
“We live for dreams, and [the Ballon d’Or] is determined by the criteria used. I am not the best player in the world when it comes to skill. But if it comes down to who has won the most prizes, no one has won more than me.”
Jorginho of Chelsea will fight for the Ballon d’Or with Lionel Messi. Jorginho isn’t a guy who will score many goals or produce many assists. His ability to control the game’s tempo, on the other hand, is unrivaled.
The Chelsea midfielder has developed into one of the world’s most complete midfielders. By putting in a defensive shift in the past game, he has also hushed some of his critics.Competing against Lionel Messi, on the other hand, will be difficult. The Argentine is not only the world’s most talented player, but he has also achieved a level of consistency that may never be equaled.
The Copa América has revalued Messi’s options to win his seventh Ballon d’Or award, despite only winning the Copa del Rey with his club. His rivals will most likely be Kanté, winner of the Champions League, and Mbappé, although the reasons for his candidacy are unknown. [md] pic.twitter.com/8bOjRhkn8V

Last season, Messi led La Liga with 30 goals, making him the top scorer in the country. He also has more goals and assists in the Copa America than any other player, helping Argentina win their first major trophy in over two decades.
Jorginho has been in terrific form, but if he wants to win the Ballon d’Or, he’ll have to be at the top of his game for C.
