Former Chelsea managerMaurizio Sarri, who brought Jorginho to Chelsea has tipped the 29-year-old for the award.

Speaking on Jorginho's chances at the Ballon d'Or, Sarri said: “If Italy were to win the European Championship, it is clear that he would become one (a favourite for the award),

"He is a refined player, probably not understandable by everyone. You have to set your eyes on him and only watch him in the game. He is so good and intelligent that he makes everything seem easy, rarely anything spectacular remains in your eyes. This is its greatness.”
