Jorginho backs Kevin De Bruyne for Ballon d'Or

Jorginho believes Kevin De Bruyne is a deserving winner of the Ballon d'Or in 2021.

The Italian has been considered as an outsider for the accolade after winning the Champions League and Euro 2020 in a matter of months earlier this year.

Jorginho, on the other hand, believes De Bruyne of Manchester City is a strong contender, complimenting the playmaker's consistency in recent seasons.

Speaking to ESPN, Jorginho said: "If I don't vote for me, who will? I want to have at least one vote! Just kidding.

"I believe I'd vote for Kevin De Bruyne for everything he's been doing and for the beautiful football he's been showing in recent years.

"For those who like football, it's great to see him play because he understands football, he is a player with above-average intelligence."

The winner of this year's award will be announced on November 29.
