What He Had To Say;

“He deserves, he is one of those who deserves to win the Ballon d’Or,” the former Borussia Dortmund manager said on Jorginho.

“He is a very intelligent player, it is a pleasure to be his coach.

“The list of 30 candidates came out but for me this list is not important, I do not judge them in that sense.

“These awards do not make much sense to me, obviously the players crave these awards but it is impossible to make a real comparison between all these players.

Who should say is the best? Everyone deserves to win it from a certain point of view.

“Obviously I would like someone from Chelsea to win it as it would increase confidence, but it’s not the most important thing in the world of football.”

The award will be held on November 29 as the likes of Mason Mount, NGolo Kante, Cesar Azpilicueta, Romelu Lukaku and Jorginho all nominated in the 30-man list.
