Italian media slam Chelsea and Azzurri star Jorginho: “Not a Ballon D’or performance.”

The Italian media has criticised Chelsea and Azzurri midfielder Jorginho for his performance against Switzerland for Roberto Mancini’s side.

Jorginho featured on the base of the midfield on Sunday and on top of coming up with an unimpressive performance, he also missed a penalty. He stuck to his hop, skip and jump routine but Yann Sommer anticipated the spot-kick well.

La Repubblica have given him a match rating of 4.5 and have come up with scathing criticism for him, claiming that like his blond hair, Jorginho is also turning to grey.

Corriere della Sera have described it to be a ‘bad night’ for the midfield orchestrator too. Il Messaggero have meanwhile, stated that it was ‘not a Ballon D’or performance’ from the player and gave him a disappointing rating of 5.
