Champions League: Lampard hints at new Chelsea penalty taker after Jorginho miss
Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, has revealed there will be discussions to decide who his team’s penalty taker will be going forward.
This follows Jorginho’s miss in the Champions League against Krasnodar on Wednesday.
Jorginho has been the Blues’ penalty kick taker and has only missed once in his career before this season.
However, the former Napoli midfielder has missed two of the four spot-kicks he has taken this term.
Chelsea earned a second penalty in the second half against Krasnodar, with Timo Werner firing in his spot-kick to make it 2-0.
After the match, Lampard said: “Jorginho has had an incredibly successful rate of scoring penalties in his career, particularly at Chelsea.
“My feeling is that when you take as many penalties as he does there can be periods when you can miss one or two. I’ve experienced that as a player.
“I’ve no problem at all with his style of taking them because of the success he has had and Timo Werner I know is very capable of taking penalties, as we saw.
“We have other players that can do it so I’ll talk with them afterwards to see how we move forward, but we have good takers at the club.”
