How Jorginho Has More Achievements to Win Ballon D'or This Year than Modric Has in 2018

Many debates have been centered on whether Jorginho possesses the lovable traits that will help him win the Ballon D'Or Award this year, like Luka Modric did in 2018. Why the Chelsea midfielder have upper edge in winning this year Ballon D'or than Modric has in 2018 will be discussed in this article:

Jorginho, like Modric, is a midfielder, and many football fans believe he has chances to win the Ballon D'Or this year like the Croatian international.

When the Chelsea midfielder won the UEFA Champions League with the Blues last season, relatable subjects concerning Ballon D'or were more raised up. He also won the European Championship 2020 with the Italian National Team to round out the season and many football fans seem to be impressed with his performances.Many people now believe the midfield maestro to be one of the best candidates to win the famous Ballon D'or Award this year, based on his outstanding exploits.

Others, particularly non-supporters of the Chelsea star, argue that he lacks the quality of a midfielder like Modric.

However, when comparing the achievements of both midfielders prior to being nominated for the Ballon D'Or Award, it is evident that Jorginho has the upper hand over Modric.

Modric was a member of the Croatian National Team when they lost to France in the 2018 World Cup Final. He won the Champions League with Real Madrid in 2018. In the year he was nominated, he was unable to win any domestic titles in the Spanish Laliga. The UEFA Super Cup was another European prize he was able to win then.

Jorginho, on the other hand, won the UEFA Champions League with Chelsea when he was nominated for the Ballon D'Or this year. He was a member of the winning team as the Italian Azurri won the Euro 2020 Final against the England's Three Lions. He won the UEFA Best Player Award and played in the Emirates FA Cup Final against Leicester City, though, the Foxes won the cup in the end. He was also able to win the UEFA Super Cup in Windsor Park against Villarreal, and the Club World Cup is yet to be played.

This demonstrates how, like Luka Modric in 2018, Jorginho outperformed all expectations in order to win this year's Ballon D'or Award.
