Lazio coach Sarri says Chelsea midfielder Jorginho can win Ballon d'Or

Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri says Chelsea midfielder Jorginho is capable of winning the Ballon d'Or.

Sarri worked with Jorginho at Chelsea and Napoli.

"If he wins the European Championship, he is a candidate for the Ballon d'Or," Sarri told SportItalia. “He's a refined player and that's why everyone doesn't understand him.

“He makes everything seem easy, it's his greatness. When I went to Chelsea, we managed to snatch him from Manchester City.

“At first it was hard to understand him, the fans, the journalist, now I see that he is appreciated. He was also the captain of Chelsea."
