Jorginho wins 2020/21 UEFA Player of the Year
The 29-year-old has enjoyed a brilliant few months – winning the Champions League final with Chelsea before mirroring those feats at international level as Italy became Euro 2020 champions.
And on Thursday he completed a hat-trick of accolades as he was crowned UEFA’s best player of last season.
The midfielder beat Chelsea team-mate N’Golo Kante and Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne to the top prize.
Chelsea’s No 5’s big moment was officially announced during Thursday’s Champions League group-stage draw.
Jorginho, Kante and De Bruyne had made the final three-man shortlist ahead of the likes of Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski.
