Italy legend, Antonio Cassano has launched a scathing attack on Arsenal midfielder, Jorginho who he appears to be surprised was a past Ballon d’Or contender.
Casssano said that Jorginho struggles to kick a ball when running or provide an assist to his teammates.
Jorginho made history with Italy at the 2020 Euros, appearing in seven games as they won the competition.
In the same year, the 31-year-old also won the UEFA Champions League with former club Chelsea.
He made 43 appearances across competitions, scoring eight goals and providing two assists.
However, Jorginho is currently struggling for game time at Arsenal following the arrival of Declan Rice from Premier League club West Ham United over the summer.
“At a certain point in Italy there was talk of Jorginho as the Ballon d’Or winner. Do you realise? A footballer who struggles to kick and assist, without running or physique,” Cassano said (via Sport Witness).
“He doesn’t play at Arsenal because they signed Rice. It is not like they have Xavi and Iniesta. In Italy we made him a champion.”
