Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is thrilled to see Chelsea duo Jorginho and N’Golo Kante recognised following their excellent performances for club and country last season.
Jorginho and Kante have been nominated for the UEFA Men’s Player of the Year award.
“It is a good sign for football, and that includes Kevin De Bruyne 200 per cent,” Tuchel told Chelsea’s official website.
“I see in all three of them true team players, and true helpers. They make things easy for others. They are not shy to take any job on the field that helps their team-mates, and maybe stops them shining, even.
“They are some of the best midfielders in the world. They had a fantastic season, and all three of them deserve to be in the mix for this title. They have a fantastic work-rate, team spirit and fantastic mentality to help everybody out and solve problems.
“It’s a team sport, and these guys are so important for any top-flight team, and any team that has high ambitions. Putting them in the spotlight can only help and will not change their attitude.”
