Jorginho got his hands on a third European trophy in a matter of months, as Chelsea won the UEFA Super Cup, and fans think he should win the Ballon d'Or.
On Wednesday night, Chelsea added the Super Cup to the Champions League they won back in May, by beating Villarreal on penalties in Belfast.
Whilst most Chelsea players were celebrating their second European trophy in just three months, Italy players Jorginho and Emerson were celebrating their third, having also won the Euros this summer.
Former Napoli man Jorginho was the only one of the pair to have played in all three finals and social media was abuzz with praise for the 29-year-old.
Some fans went as far as to claim the midfielder should be crowned as the best player on earth and win the Ballon d'Or this year.

According to the bookies, Jorginho is actually third favourite to be named as the best player in the world this year, behind both Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski.
Messi finally got the international trophy monkey off his back, as Argentina won the Copa America this summer, and has already scored an incredible 33 goals in this calendar year alone.
Lewandowski helped Bayern Munich win Bundesliga once again and he broke a 49-year-old record of most goals in a single season in the German top tier.
Jorginho's record of trophies is very good, but is he even Chelsea's best midfielder?
