2 Reasons Why Jorginho Might Win The Ballon D'or Ahead Of Any Other Nominees

The ballon d'or ceremony has been scheduled on the 29th of November, 2021. From players performances last season and the accolades awarded this season, we already know the nominees for the award. Jorginho, Lionel Messi, Robert Lewandowski and maybe N'golo Kante are all nominees to win the ballon d'or award this year.All players mentioned has what it takes to win the ballon d'or but Jorginho has more advantages and might end up winning the award. Here are two reasons why Jorginho might win the award ahead of any other nominee.

1. UEFA Player Of The Year: Jorginho won the UEFA player of the year award after a successful Champions League season with Chelsea and winning the EUROS with Italy. Jorginho played a major role in these successes and received a well deserved award. Lionel Messi won the Copa America player of the year and other accolades, but the UEFA player of the year award is above all. For the past years, players who won the player of the year ended up winning the ballon d'or.

Robert Lewandowski didn't win any award at the UEFA ceremony but he won the European golden shoe. He also had a brilliant season with Bayern Munich last season, he sustained an injury mid season and didn't get the chance to play for Bayern Munich in the Champions League. Despite winning the European golden shoe, Robert Lewandowski wasn't nominated for the UEFA player of the year award. His chances of winning the ballon d'or are slim.

2. 3 UEFA Trophies: Jorginho joined the elite list of players who have won the EUROS, Champions League and the Super Cup all in a year. He could be on his way to win the club World Cup as well, unfortunately the club World Cup holds after the ballon d'or ceremony. Lionel Messi will be a contestant for the ballon d'or award after his performance with Argentina in the Copa America. He didn't have a great season with Barcelona last season, winning only the Copa dey ray trophy. Jorginho became a strong contender for the FIFA ballon d'or award after he won the EUROS with Italy and playing a major role in their success.
