OPINION: Why Jorginho Doesn't Deserve To Be Awarded The Best Player In Europe

According to UEFA, Jorginho was the best player in Europe last season! Isn't that a load of nonsense? Who'd have guessed that UEFA would make such a terrible judgment! But, to be honest, for a long time, the UEFA awards have been a joke.

Before Chelsea fans attack me, let me ask you a question: was Jorginho your team's most important player? The answer will be a big NO. If I ask an Italian Team fan the same question, he will give me the same response. Chiellini, Donnaruma, Bonnucci, Chiesa, and others would be considered among the best Italian players in Euro 2020. Jorginho isn't going to make the top five!

That is what UEFA has provided us with. They named a player the Best in Europe, despite the fact that he was not even in the top three in his club or national team.

This small fact adds to the stupidity of the entire decision: imagine England winning the Euro instead of Italy. Just think about it. Jorginho would have been suddenly erased from the whole conversation. I'm not going to name any players who I believe should have won the award, but Jorginho was certainly not the best in Europe.

If UEFA's primary objective was to make this award useless, they have succeeded splendidly. From next year on, no one will care about the Best Player In Europe; instead, they will be more interested in the FIFA Player of the Year Award or the Ballon d'Or
