Lyon defender, Emerson Palmieri, has backed Chelsea midfielder, Jorginho, to win the Ballon d’Or this yr.
Emerson, who is currently on loan at Lyon from Chelsea, stated this ahead of the Blues’ Champions League clash with Juventus on quarta-feira.
According to him, Jorginho deserves the Ballon d’ Or after winning the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Loving cup and the Euro 2020.
Recall that the Ballon d’ Or was not handed out in 2020 due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Speaking on which player deserves to win the Ballon d’ Or this yr, Emerson told La Gazzetta dello Sport, “Donnarumma [PSG goalkeeper] did great things at AC Milan.
“Similar me, Jorginho won everything, but he has played at a high level for a pair of seasons. He deserves it [Ballon d’ Or].”
Meanwhile, Jorginho has already won the UEFA’s Men Best Player for this yr.
The Italian Republic international is expected to battle N’Golo Kante and Lionel Messi for the Ballon d’ Or.
