​Chelsea assistant Low backs Jorginho to beat Messi to Ballon D'Or

Chelsea assistant coach Zsolt Low believes midfielder Jorginho can win the Ballon d'Or.

The Italian is among the favourites to claim the honour following an outstanding year for club and country.

Jorginho won the Champions League with Chelsea and Euro 2020 with Italy in the summer.

"He is a sensational man who excels not only in his quality and knowledge [on the pitch], but also in his human qualities," Low told Digi Sport.

"I would consider him absolutely deserving if he won the Ballon d'Or, and would be glad that the award wasn't only decided between two or three offensive players, but that there be an opportunity for someone else to win it with hard work and great discipline."
