But he believes De Bruyne’s level – not just this year but in previous seasons – means he deserves the title of best in the world.

Tell ESPN Brazil: “If I don’t vote for me, who will? I want to have at least one vote! I’m just joking.”

“I think I would vote for Kevin De Bruyne for everything he has been doing and for the beautiful football he has played in recent years.

“For those who love football, it is great to see him play because he understands football, he is a player with above average intelligence.”

De Bruyne also said he will only look at the player’s form after the current year when deciding who should win the Ballon d’Or.

Because of that, he chose Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski, who has not stopped scoring for the past two years.

The striker is the favorite to win the award, along with Lionel Messi.

As for Jorginho, he is somewhat of a dark horse to hold the trophy after a good year of success.

Besides the Champions League medal, the Italian also won Euro 2020 and has been key to Chelsea’s improvement since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel.

Italy coach Roberto Mancini believes Ballon d’Or winner Jorginho should be crowned, but the midfielder does not appear to be too confident of getting the votes.
