Napoli skipper Lorenzo Insigne says Italy teammate Jorginho deserves Ballon d'Or recognition.

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has shone during the Euros on the back of winning the Champions League.

“We have quality players. You talked about Jorginho and it's correct," Insigne said replying to a question on whether the Chelsea midfielder would deserve the Ballon D'or.

“He had spent some fantastic years at Chelsea and I am proud to have him in our team.

“I'm not the one deciding if he deserves the Ballon d'Or, but I hope he'll be shortlisted, he deserves so, he is a great player. I call him the professor and we are all happy to play with him."
