Jorginho is one of the 30 players shortlisted for Ballon d’Or.
The Italian midfielder played a pivotal role this year winning the Champions League with Chelsea and the Euro 2020 with the national team.
He had an incredible season for both club and country last term.
The winner of the prestigious award will be announced on November 29 in Paris with Lionel Messi being the bookmakers’ favourite.
Tuchel believes Jorginho truly deserves to win the award this year.
“Jorginho deserves to win the Ballon d’Or,” Tuchel said. “He’s a very intelligent player and it’s a pleasure to be his coach.
“He has a great vision of football. For me, individual prizes don’t have great significance, it’s impossible to make a real comparison between several players of different roles.
“I would like one of my players to win it because I would know what the effect would be. Then Jorginho is a great person and an excellent player, but in general it’s not the most important thing.”
