Look at the medals hanging around Jorginho’s neck and it’s easy to assume that the path leading to that moment was smooth, with the destination clear from the start. But nothing comes easy. As Jorginho tells Caroline De Moraes in issue 9 of Champions Journal, there were times when he was ready to pack it all in. In the end it was the support of his family and sheer mental strength that kept the Chelsea midfielder on track.
Our other cover star, Fikayo Tomori, has also followed a winding road to reach the top, playing on loan at three different clubs before finally finding his feet at AC Milan. And when you do make it, there can be no let-up – as Simon Hart reveals in his study of what the world’s best strikers are doing to keep at the top of their game well into their thirties.
But it’s not all about hard work here at Champions Journal. As we kick off our third season, we also kick back with music maestro Jules Koundé, we tap into the special relationship between Bob Marley and Ajax, drop in on Paris for a bit of that Messi magic and take time out in the beautiful Swiss city of Berne – an essential stop on any Champions League tour.
We hope you enjoy it!
