Jorginho is among the nominees for this year's award.

“It has been an incredible year for me, even surreal. The Ballon d'Or is not an obsession, I prefer to concentrate on the present, although obviously it'd be a dream come true to win it," said Jorginho to France Football.

Jorginho also insists he has never had second thoughts choosing Italy over Brazil.

“When Edu Gaspar called me in 2018, I had already given up on Brazil. Who wouldn't want to play for Brazil? But I thought long and hard and decided it was impossible to turn my back on Italy. This country opened its arms and allowed me to become a professional football player. I had already played some friendly games with the Azzurri too.

“I am grateful for everything Italy has given me and proud of my choice to wear this jersey."
