My boys deserve Ballon d’Or: tuchel break silence about Having 5 balloon d’or nominees

Tuchel: ‘Having 5 nominees makes me proud but these boys deserve Ballon d’Or as a team’

Asked to give his thoughts on 5 Chelsea players being nominated for the Ballon d’Or award, Thomas Tuchel said (via Chelsea FC): “The boys deserve the Ballon d’Or as a team.

“We played as underdogs in the Champions League and we overperformed from every stage in these matches. We performed under high pressure and on big stages against top teams.

“We won a very important and big title, so they can give the Ballon d’Or to the guys as a team, I would be very happy for this award. I know this doesn’t exist.

“When you have five guys on the list, it makes you very proud, and I’m happy for every single player. If he’s on the list and can win it, even better. But it’s not the most important.”

Jorginho, Mason Mount, N’Golo Kante, Romelu Lukaku and Cesar Azpilicueta are the five Chelsea names on the Ballon d’Or nominees list.

Jorginho is one of the favourites to win the award. However, as Tuchel said, the team can be proud together for their achievements and any Blue winning the award will just be icing on the cake.
