Tuchel was not separated from the question. Given his current status as manager of the Blues, it’s predictable that he wants players too Chelsea who came out victorious. Moreover, there Jorginho expected to be in the top three.

Even so, Tuchel is not so interested in the Ballon d’Or award. The reason is, he sees it difficult to compare the greatness of one player with another, especially if they play in different positions.

“Jorginho deserves to win the Ballon d’Or, he’s an intelligent player, it’s a pleasure to coach him,” he said Tuchel, quoted by Football Italia.

“He has extraordinary vision in football. But for me, individual awards are not important, because it is impossible to make real comparisons between players in different positions.”

“I want one of my players to win the award because I know how much influence he has. Jorginho is a great person and an extraordinary player, but overall that’s not the most important thing,” Tuchel said of the Ballon d’Or.
