Winning the Champions League with Chelsea and then the European Championship with Italy.
To top that off, he helped the Blues to win the UEFA Super Cup as well
And could yet add the UEFA Nations League to his 2021 trophy collection.
Chiellini ahead of taking on Jorginho’s Chelsea in the Champions League on Wednesday he said;
“I hope he wins the Ballon d’Or because he’s a friend and I‘ll feel that award is as much mine as an Italian,”
“He was key to our setup and we won a lot of games because of him”
“I’ve always considered Jorginho to be a great player after the first two training sessions we had together, but he has evolved under [Roberto] Mancini.”
