Chelsea boss Tuchel happy Kante, Jorginho being discussed as Ballon d'Or contenders

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is delighted hearing N'Golo Kante and Jorginho being talked up as Ballon d'Or contenders.

Tuchel was impressed by the pair at Euro 2020.

He told the club's website: "Absolutely, and it's good that they talk about our players first of all, and that it shifts a little bit and the guys like Jorgi and like N'Golo Kante are in the spotlight, because they are so, so useful and so, so helpful for any team in the world. And we are so lucky to have them.

"Mateo Kovacic is another of that kind, he has the same mentality, the same ability, so we are absolutely happy to have these three midfielders. They're such a big help to any team in the world. Their approach to football is they're true team players. They are true helpers. They make things easy for the others, they don't hide from a lot of work, putting in a lot of effort for others.

"This is a fantastic message to football in general, that these guys come to the spotlight. They're famous for teamwork. This is good, it sends the right message."
