Neither Lionel Messi nor Cristiano Ronaldo were in the last three of the UEFA World Cup for the second time in a row. The last time this award was won by Robert Lewandowski of Bayern Munich. Kevin de Bruyne finished after him. This time the Manchester City midfielder has been shortlisted. This time he had to return empty handed. Jorgensen's other rival was his teammate Angolo Kante.

J rgenho is the UEFA Footballer of the Year

Last season was incredible for Chelsea's two midfielders Jorgenho and Kant. They helped the Premier League club win the Champions League. Both were in the starting XI in the final against Man City. In Portugal, Kai Haverz's goal in the first half made the difference in the match. Kante was the best in the match.

Thomas Tuchel's side finished fourth in the league table and also got tickets for the upcoming Champions League. Chelsea also won the UEFA Super Cup after losing to Villarreal.

Georginho was one place ahead of Kant. The 29-year-old midfielder also won the Euro Championship with Italy.

De Bruyne, on the other hand, came back from injury and was instrumental in helping Man City win the Premier League. He was named PFA Player of the Year for the second consecutive season in recognition of his outstanding performance.

Champions League-winning Chelsea coach Thomas Itukhel has overtaken Manchester League winners Pep Guardiola to become UEFA's coach of the year.
