Juventus star Giorgio Chiellini has raved about the quality of Chelsea player Jorginho ahead of Wednesday night.
The Blues travel to Turin tomorrow to face Juventus in the Champions League group stages. Both teams have a 100 per cent win record after the opening round of fixtures.
Juventus defender Chiellini, who’s played 539 games for The Old Lady, knows all about one upcoming opponent.
The veteran centre-back played alongside Chelsea midfielder Jorginho this summer as Italy won the Euro 2020 competition, with both key men for their country.
Chiellini has tipped Jorginho for the individual Ballon d’Or prize this year. Also, he’s given a rave review about his international colleague:
“I’ve always thought he was a good player but after the first few training sessions, I realised how good he is, what a top player he is,” Chiellini said.
“He has great technical qualities, but the real difference is in his head. Many said he was always able to play with Sarri, but everywhere he goes he is a regular starter, I really hope he will win the Ballon d’Or.”
