Chelsea fans make Jorginho and N’Golo Kante Ballon d’Or point as Blues win Club of the Year


Chelsea duo Jorginho and N’Golo Kante were both named in the top five of the Ballon d’Or rankings for 2021.

Lionel Messi claimed his seventh award of the famous golden ball, with Robert Lewandowski, Jorginho, Karim Benzema and Kante completing the top five.

The Chelsea duo were also joined in the top 30 by their team-mates Cesar Azpilicueta (29th), Mason Mount (19th) and Romelu Lukaku (12th) after a tremendous 2021 for the Blues.

Kante played a key role for Chelsea as they secured their second-ever Champions League trophy, and also helped add the European Super League to their ever-growing trophy cabinet later in the year.

The France midfielder was also superb for his country in the Euros over the summer, while Jorginho played a massive role in Italy’s triumph in the international competition.

The Italian starred for Chelsea in their European success – meaning a top-five finish for the Blues duo was more than deserved, and the club’s supporters have been reacting to the result.
