Chelsea Dominates UEFA Men's Awards As Jorginho Wins Best Player Of The Year

Jorginho beat his teammate N’Golo Kante and Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne to be crowned the Men’s Player of the Year after he won the Champions League with Chelsea and the European Championship with Italy.

The 29-year-old Italian midfielder also started the new season by claiming a third Uefa trophy of the year when Tuchel’s side lifted the Super Cup in Belfast.
