Jorginho named UEFA Men’s Player of the Year

Jorginho

Chelsea midfielder, Jorginho, was on Thursday named UEFA Men’s Player of the Year.

This follows his impressive displays for both club and country in the 2020/2021 season.

Jorginho was a vital part of the Blues engine room, as they fought to Champions League glory.

And he repeated the feat over the summer to help deliver the Euro 2020 trophy to Italy.

Jorginho was one of three players chosen as finalists for the Player of the Year award.

Chelsea team-mate N’Golo Kante was also included in the final shortlist, as was Kevin De Bruyne, who enjoyed yet another sparkling year for Manchester City.

Ultimately, though, Jorginho’s exploits at both club and international level were judged to have put him ahead of his two rivals, leaving him with the prestigious UEFA award.
