Ex-Super Eagles defender tips Jorginho over Kante for Uefa Player of the Year


The Chelsea stars are up for the prestigious award, and Kingsley Obiekwu reveals why the Italy international is a massive favourite for the prize

Jorginho stands a better chance than his Chelsea teammate N'Golo Kante of winning the Uefa Player of the Year award, according to ex-Nigeria international Kingsley Obiekwu.

The Blues stars – who played crucial roles in the Stamford Bridge giants’ Champions League triumph – made the final cut alongside Belgium international and Manchester City maestro Kevin De Bruyne, who inspired Pep Guardiola’s Citizens to the Premier League crown.

Interestingly, this is the first time in the prize’s 11-year history that the final three shortlists will be midfielders, with the winner set to be announced at the 2021-22 Champions League group-stage draw ceremony.
