The European football governing body UEFA has reacted after Chelsea football club of England star Jorginho won the Man of the Match award, in his team’s 2-0 away victory over Portuguese Primeira Liga Champions FC Porto, in the quarter final of the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.
The Italian star who has become one of the most important players under coach Thomas Tuchel put on another classic performance for the London based club on Wednesday night, as he guided them to a deserved victory away from home.
Jorginho started in the away team’s Midfield alongside Croatian star Matteo Kovacic, and the duo were outstanding for the Blues.
Goals from Mason Mount in the first half, and a late goal from Ben Chilwell were enough to give the Blues the deserved victory over their opponent.
Jorginho was superb for the Blues throughout the whole duration of the game, and his excellent performance earned him a Man of the Match award after the end of the game.
Reacting after Jorginho won the Man of the Match award, UEFA posted on their verified Instagram handle that;
“🔵 Jorginho is recognised for his fine Midfield display against FC Porto 🥇.”
